The original Frank Holding Memorial Match saw 111 anglers fish the Grand Canal in his memory on Saturday last. Reminiscent of the days of 300 peg Prosperous AC Festival it was fantastic to see such a turn out! Congratulations to Brian Kane who is the 2018 King of the Canal and to all the winners including those who picked up some top raffle prizes.

The roach were not back yet with catches consisting mostly of skimmers, hybrids and baby tench.

A super event with plenty of sponsorship from many to include Waterways Ireland and Sensas Ireland. Well done to Conor Browne and all involved. The Prosperous AC Festival has resurrected itself in recent years as the Leinster Festival fishing Sun-Tue-Thu this week using stretches at Rathangan and Lullymore.
