Welcome to the website of Northern Ireland Cross Community Angling based at both Beechhill and Conlig. We are a subscriber based charity which exists to primarily promote angling within our community at our fully accessible angling hub. Subscribers to the charity are offered the chance to receive additional training so as to offer their services on a voluntary basis to assist in day to day running of the fishery and taking part in angling outreach events.  The charity also runs various competitions and events for our subscribers to take part in throughout the year. We also offer non fishing subscription options for those that wish to join on a volunteer basis only.

We are a registered charity and Clubmark NI accredited to Gold Certification
