First salmon – first message against sealice

Well done to young Mc Manus who sent our message to the minister and government on catching the first salmon of 2014. See him giving the two fingers to sealice and fish farms on the photo. Eoin comes from banks of Cathleen’s Falls in the banks of the Erne where the wild Atlantic salmon ruled that river until the state sacrificed it for one of five hydro electric plants in early 1950’s. The same place (now Assaroe Lake) they flattened an ancient castle to make way for the dam. Then they realised – someone got their sums wrong and the castle could have been left alone. So, openly question everything state decision, especially BIM to protect our heritage.
