Ceardlanna Gaeilge - i saoirseacht Currach Toraigh
To coincide with the 100th anniversary of Ireland's Independence, we have decided to mark the occasion by running a series of workshops which, we believe, define our Irish heritage and culture. Recently we were kindly given a very old Tory Currach by a local man. This currach is in need of repair and possibly is too far gone to save but it is good enough to use as a template for building a new identical Tory Currach. We would like to offer these work shops 'as Gaeilge' for those of us who would like to brush up on our Gaeilge, to use our 'cúpla focal' and become more confident with our spoken Irish. The emphasis on this project is more on conversational Irish rather than the completion of the currach (although we will aim to complete the Currach)
So ....anyone interested in making a Tory Cuurach 'as Gaeilge'? We would love to hear from you! ....click here

Boyne Currach Heritage Group.........
The Boyne Currach Heritage Group is based in the world heritage site of Brú na Boinne. Its aim is to rediscover ancient skills and crafts used by our Neolithic passage tomb ancestors who brought their civilisation and culture from Europe to our Irish shores, and left behind them threads of evidence that we now work from to try to explore who these people were and how they lived along the banks of the River Boyne.
