  The northern road in Streamstown Bay   There are several good rock fishing marks along the bay on the north side, just down from the road. They run from the Acton's Eco Campsite (signposted on the left hand side) down as far as the ruined castle on the shore. Species & Techniques:Again Pollack Wrasse and Conger are the main species , all on legered baits although you could try for the Wrasse with float fished rigs.  Spinning will take Mackerel, Garfish and Pollack in season.  Sand eel lures will work too

Omey Races

Posted on July 24, 2012 at 7:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Saturday 04 August 2012 Venue: Claddaghduff, Connemara, Co Galway Omey Races (horse racing on the beach) takes place on the 4th August on Omey Strand


Omey is a tidal island located near Claddaghduff, a few miles from Clifden, in the western edge of Connemara. There is a route across the sand to the island and, at high tide, the water is deep enough to cover a car. To help in the last moments before the water becomes too deep, there are conventional street signs to indicate the highest route.


The start time depends on the tide but usually around 11.30 and, of course, the finish time also depends on the tide.


Omey Island is about a mile long by a mile wide.


Among the sand dunes on the island lie the ruins of a small medieval church, which stands on the site of a monastery, founded by St. Feichin, in the seventh century
