The Irish climate is well suited to sport angling. It is temperate and kind to the angler with moderate summers, mild winters and adequate rainfall throughout the year. The warm waters of the North Atlantic Drift lap the south and west coasts, giving us a milder climate than our geographical location would indicate. The result is a fabulous mixture of cold and warm water fish species, capable of exciting the specialist or casual angler.
It is important that people with disabilities are active and get the recommended 30 minutes of moderate physical activity five days a week in order to help maintain and improve their mental and physical health.
