About the Event

An Irish currach is a traditional vessel made of wood lathe and covered in canvas. Currachs dateback several thousand years.  They were used for trade among islands, between islands and mainland and along coastal mainland villages. They are relatively light (for their size) fishing/trade boats, which could withstand high swells, have been streamlined in design for rowing competitions.
