While we are in 'shutdown' mode due to Covid19 I have taken the opportunity to write a book about 'THE MOTOR YACHT CLUB OF IRELAND' which thrived from 1907 until its demise in about 1935.

The club was active in Clontarf, Pembroke (where the Dodder meets the Liffey), Kingstown/Dun Laoghaire, Waterford, Ahlone, Tarmonbarry, Lough Bofin and Boderg, River Bann and Belfast Lough.

The key menKey Motor Yacht Club of Ireland men from left to right: C.H. Warren, Dr V.S. Delany (Longford), T.H.R. Craig (Solicitor, Frederick St), Alf Delany (Trinity College Dublin), Col. Mansfield, D.McMorrogh, D.P.C. Plunkett

Among the families who took part were: Delanys, Sargents, Wallers and Meldon families.
