Dublin angler Tom Walsh had a Bank Holiday Monday to remember, bagging an Irish record spurdog weighing 24lb 6oz while fishing with Hamish Currie out of Red Bay.

The current record of 10.6kg (23lb 12oz) was set in 2011 by Albert Koawenhourn, a Dutch angler fishing out of Red Bay with Hamish Currie.

In fact the last five times the record has been broken the anglers were fishing with Hamish!
