In Dingle the currach mainly survives as racing currach. I have investigated the excellent fleet of racing currachs there for many years. I met currach builder Eddie Hutch shortly, twice in my life and should have asked him about the development of that modified boat, evolving from a fishing currach. Someone should do that, before it is too late.
A naomhóg a traditional boat built in Kerry by Eddie Hutch will have a new home in Poland at the maritime museum. Find out more.
