Lecture: “Traditional Boats of Ireland Book Project”

#Lecture – "Traditional Boats of Ireland Book Project" is a lecture to be presented by marine archaeologist, Darina Tully next Tuesday 4 February at 20:00 in Poolbeg Yacht and Boat Club, Ringsend, Dublin.

All are welcome to the lecture series organised by the Members of Glenua & Friends which is held in the intimate venue located close to the busy heart of Dublin Port. Entry fee of €5 is in aid of the RNLI.

The Traditional Boats of Ireland Boat Book Project, completed in 2008, was a unique undertaking that brought together sailors, historians, engineers, historians, folklorists, archaeologists and marine architects to record Ireland's vernacular boating heritage.

Ireland has a wide variety of traditional boats, from small fishing boats, inland industrial craft, former sailing work boats and various skin boats along with examples of important heritage craft. This talk will give some background to the Book Project and bring you on a tour of Ireland showing you the wide variety of boats reflecting our rich maritime history and culture.

As a maritime archaeologist, Darina has spent over two decades recording small traditional boats and fisheries. She is co-ordinator of Maritime Archaeology Studies at Saor-Ollscoil na hÉireann and has studied at the University of Ulster and St Andrews University. She has been involved in a number of related projects and publications.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
