Galway Audit Still Seeks Heritage Boats

22nd April 2010
Galway Audit Still Seeks Heritage Boats
Field-work for an audit on heritage boats has recorded almost 500 heritage boats from the coastline and inland waterways of Co. Galway. However, despite press advertisements in 2008 and 2009, no boats have been found in the extensive inland areas of North Galway/Tuam and in the Upper River Suck (above Ballinasloe).

As the survey is now drawing to a close it is important that knowledge of any heritage boats - i.e. boats over 25 years old - in these areas, should be brought to the attention of the Heritage Officer or the survey team (contact details below):
