The Mayor of the Metropolitan District of Waterford City and County Council, Cllr John Hearne granted a Mayoral reception to the World Shore Irish Teams for the FIPS- M World Shore Angling Championships which took place in Wexford, Ireland in November 2016. The Irish teams won double gold at the World Championships for both the men’s and the women’s competitions.

The Men’s Team Captain Martin Howlin attended and accepted a scroll on behalf of the Men’s team. The scroll was accepted on behalf of the Women’s team by competitor Jane Cantwell who is the Waterford City and County Librarian with Waterford City and County Council.

This was the first time that the World Shore Championships was held in Ireland since 1981 and both the organisers the FIPS-M (Fédération Internationale de la Pêche Sportive – Mer) and the competitors were very impressed with the fishing, the organisation and Ireland. Many of the competitors were in the South East for up to two weeks, taking a week before the competitions to practice and spend a week fishing and staying in Clayton Whites Hotel, Wexford.
