Gill's Pond Ballinakill
We are being modest when we say ‘Gill’s Pond’ because it is in fact a nice sized lake containing nice sized fish and no, it wasn’t named after one of their gills, it was named after an old woman who lived in a gate lodge type house at the entrance to the lake. The lake contains good sized roach and perch and some fine tench up to 3lb in weight.
The angling club is by no means restricted to local residents and annual membership can be obtained. The lake has undergone a major overhaul. It has been cleaned and had all its banks landscaped with proper facilities provided to assure you of an excellent day’s fishing. Tickets from Ballinakill Angling Club.
The Twin Trees Festival in August host the Annual Lutyens Cup fishing competition will take place on Sat 22nd August 2020.
The nearby Mass Lough is one of the most beautiful and scenic lakes in the country within the estate of Heywood Gardens with beautiful woodland walks.
