Meitheal Mara rowing crews take to their currachs

Thursday, 13th July, 2017 9:25am

Families and friends will row in behind the youth crews of the Bádoireacht programme as they race head-to-head on 13 July.

Crews from Blackrock and Cork city will use handcrafted currachs, including 15 Dunfanaghy currachs, two Naomhógs and one Owey Island-style currach. The race also marks the first time that the Owey Island boat will be used in the Youth Race. It will be rowed by William from the Cork Life Centre, who was part of the winning Ocean to City youth crew in 2016.

Young people have an opportunity to learn to row currachs, sail and to build their own boats and woodcraft. For more information please see
