10am
E175

In August an Irish language curach building workshop will take place in the shores of Lough Allua in Cork's Muskerry Gaeltacht.

The course runs each day from the Saturday the 10th to Sunday the 18th of August, with a day off on Wednesday the 14th.

Pádraig O' Duinnín, Paul Lynch and Eoin O' Leidhin will facilitate the workshop. Pádraig is a well known curach expert and presenter of TG4's "Muintir na Mara. Paul & Eoin first collaborated with Pádraig on a

curach build in the Erris Gaeltacht in Mayo in 2015.

Pádraig said: "If you love our language, join us in Béal Átha, creating a beautiful curach with a comfortable mix of different levels of Gaoluinn and woodworking ability."

Full 8 day tickets are E175 and four day tickets are E90 with lunch included. Tickets must be booked and paid for in advance.

Group member Paul Lynch said: "Curach making has been recently recognised for its significance in Irish cultural heritage, and what could be a deeper cultural experience than building a curach in the

language it was developed through over thousands of years?"

Each afternoon from 2.30pm
