Fochaber Carved Salmon Trophy Fish model, River Shannon.
An excellent Fochaber's studio carved wooden cock salmon on original pine backboard. The half block salmon has relief fins and is beautifully executed and painted to a high standard. The back board is painted with the description '40 LBS. SHANNON, APRIL 1928'. This is most probably one of the Fochaber fish carved by John Tully and painted by his wife Isabella Tully.

The River Shannon is the longest river in Ireland at nearly 390km long, but despite its length from source to sea level the Shannon only falls by 76m, this factor combined with excellent lakes means the Shannon is the centre of water sports in Ireland. In total the Shannon runs through 13 of Ireland's 32 counties and three provinces, Munster, Leinster and Connacht.
