If you can afford a summery shoutout, there is something really great going on in the Irish angling scene in Dún Laoghaire that’s also a tribute to multicultural Ireland and to diversity. Lots of Asian Irish folks fishing for mackerel together – whole families at times, and most encouraging – and a challenge to the stereotypical Irish taxi driver, sorry, sea angler – women swinging those mackerel flies off the end of a rod like the best of them.
And they’re catching too. Mackerel in bucket loads. So, people – take a walk down to the end of the West Pier in Dún Laoghaire or check out the tight liners on the East Pier too. It’s great to see this community in action. They’re welcome to Ireland and those tasty macks too. The great weather just adds to the spirit.
