The newly explored fishing ground about one mile off-shore from “Old Kinvara Quay,” is yielding wonderful sport.  Mr John Counihan of the National Bank, Gort, got in two hours there, three skate and three dog fish totalling 47lbs.  On a previous visit he got five tope and four dog fish.  Monk fish come there and very large skate.  In the Autumn there are large porbeagle sharks.
As well as Kinvara there are three other quays in perfect repair only three miles form the fishing ground.  There are ParkMore, Tarrae, and Newtownlynch.
