Sligo, home of Yeat's grave at Drumcliffe and the brooding mass of Ben Bulben mountain occupies the far shore of Donegal Bay. It offers superb beach fishing, including tope and ray off fine strands that would normally be the province of flatfish (bass are rare this far north, but what fish there are tend to be very big!), and equally superb pier fishing for dogfish and shoals of specimen mullet out of Mullaghmore and several other harbours. Mullaghmore is regularly used as a major centre for boat fishing competitions, as it has all the tourism and accommodation infrastructure on its doorstop. There is even a regional airport and the transport links to Dublin are now much improved, road and rail. So far we've located four boats, with four more possible!
