With Meitheal Mara and Cork currach rowing club Naomhóga Chorcaí.
Cork city is an unlikely centre for the building and rowing of traditional currachs – but community boatbuilders Meitheal Mara and the Cork currach rowing club Naomhóga Chorcaí will be displaying examples of traditional currach types, ranging from Donegal in the north to Kerry in the south. The display will cover the development of the principal boat types, the techniques and materials used in their construction, and how the boats were – and still are – used at sea on Ireland’s rugged west coast.
To be displayed in the iconic setting of the Bonded Warehouse vaults at Custom House St.
Venue: Port of Cork Marina
