Fishing the Clady River in West Donegal

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Please can you help, Seán Ó Domhnaill is carrying out research into the construction of the Clady Hydro-electric Scheme in Ireland in the 1950s. The scheme was built on the Clady river in West Donegal and had major implications for the future of the river and its surrounding hinterland, as it was an important salmon fishery at the time.

Clady River, West Donegal, Ireland.

Considerable numbers of anglers regularly came to fish on the Clady up to the end of the 1950s. Did any of your relations, friends, or family fish for salmon in West Donegal during the 1940s or 50s? If so Sean would dearly love to hear and or receive your stories. Any relevant letters, articles or photographs would also be of interest.

Sean can be contacted by email at: senod@eircom.net; or by post at: 81 Belmont Park, Raheny, Dublin 5.

Thank you.
