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
