As the name suggests, the 3 Celtic nations of Scotland, Wales and Ireland make up the field for this annual International. This is a serious but friendly match aimed at providing a test for established anglers plus an opportunity for emerging talent to experience international rules competition.
Each country hosts the event on a rotation basis and this year sees Scotland host the event on the Main Loch at Magiscroft Fisheries on August 8/9th as part of the Stirling International Angling Festival, with the Junior event taking place on the same dates on the opposite bank. Unfortunately Wales have had to withdraw from this year’s event which will now see a head to head between Scotland and Ireland.
Scotland has a good record at the Celtic Cup winning 5 of the 8 events held to date and will be looking to make it two consecutive wins.
The 2014 Team Scotland squad will be announced shortly:
