Arrigan's fancy

Brendan Arrigan recently became a man with a mission. He and his wife, Mary, decided to raise funds for CRY after his son Michael had undergone successful heart surgery in Tallaght Hospital. Brendan planned a 24 hour Fishathon on Louth Corrib, one of the Europe’s most famous trout lakes.

When the time came the weather conditions were appalling but Brendan gallantly fished on, eventually reaching his target. He managed to win support on all sides and earn funds for CRY which exceeded even his most optimistic hopes. And to make the occasion he now has a trout fly named after him – Arrigan’s Fancy.
