Hugo McCormick, Honorary Secretary of the Glens Angling Club, seen here presenting a cheque for 1000 to Maria Small, who is a representative of The Glens & Larne District, Macmillan Trust.

 

The family of the late Donald MacRea, Glenarm Road, Larne donated all his fishing equipment to the Glens Angling Club.

 

Donald, a member of the Glens Angling Club for many years and accomplished fresh water angler having fished on many of the Northern Ireland Rivers.

The equipment was sold to members of The Glens Angling Club and many for their own use. Eventually the sum of a 1000 was raised.

 

It was the wish of the MacRea family to have all the proceeds be donated to this very worthy charity.  

 

Brief history of the Glens Angling Club

 

The Club was formed back in 1956, it covers the 3 Glens rivers: Glendun, Cushendall & Glenariff.

 

Currently the Club membership is made up 110 adult members and 10 juniors.

Members are mostly local from the Glens of Antrim area and the Greater Belfast area, with some from as far away as Canada.

 

The Club's main objectives are the improvement of the river habitat and a programme of restocking for all the local rivers, in an attempt to improve the numbers of wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout.
