Fintan Kilpatrick (Convoy) and Zack Barnett (Porthall) will represent the Irish Trout Fly Fishing Association and the Trout Anglers Federation of Ireland respectively this summer on the world Youth Irish International teams.
The Cathaoirleach, together with the elected members all joined in congratulating the two boys on their achievement, adding: “It was a very proud day for the two youths and their families and a significant honour for them to represent the county in their chosen sport.”
Fintan and Zack will head off to their respective camps in July, with Fintan travelling to Westmeath and Zack travelling to the Italian Alps.
Damien Devine, on behalf of the Deele Community Anglers, said: “These two young lads will not only carry the flag in terms of country representation, but they will also carry the hopes of Donegal, and act as pioneers of bringing more young Donegal Anglers to the national stage in the years to come.”
