Lough Neagh Eels & Tours

Celebrate the Skills, Traditions and Heritage of the Lough Neagh Fishing Community
 
The Lough Neagh Fishermen’s Co-operative has been amongst the fore runners of wild eel producers for decades and is recognised as the largest producer of wild caught eel in Europe, producing around 400 tonnes of eel annually.
 
Fancy hearing about the mythical tales that surround Lough Neagh, including the formation of the lough by Fionn Mac Cumhail and how St Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland, turning them into eels?

Do you know about Lough Neagh Pollan, the only European vertebrate found uniquely in Ireland, with Lough Neagh the only lake currently capable of sustaining a viable commercial stock of pollan?
 
Are you prepared to be amazed at the story of the epic migration of Lough Neagh Eel (European eel) and its fascinating lifecycle?
