This is a beautiful scenic lake with some islands and surrounded by hills on both sides. The village of Cahir lies off the southern shore and Flagmount is midway along the eastern shoreline.

This stand is capable of  accommodating up to 4 anglers.

TO GET THERE: From Tulla take the Feakle road and the lake is located about 5 kms to the north of Feakle village.

Review: "Lough Graney situated in east Clare is Clare's biggest lake and very prolific in a variety of specimen fish. From good double pike ( Please put them back, as we all know pike thrive on neglect), massive perch, and large ferox trout, along with the millions of roach and bream hybrids. There are three good places to fish from if you enjoy bank fishing. The main peg in Cahir, two piers in Flagmount village, and a secret peg just down from Killanena. The scenery is spectacular, and the fishing fantastic. So treat yourself and tight lines." - Alan Quigley.
