Meet the Fishermen: Lough Neagh
A truly authentic Northern Irish trip for those who want to enliven their senses and get first hand experience of life on Lough Neagh. Meet the fishermen on the Lough as they set lines and go about their work, as fishermen have been doing for thousands of years.

“Where you weren’t known and far from what you knew
The lowland clays and waters of Lough Beg
Church Island’s spire, its soft treeline of yew"
