The Currach 
Currachs are found all over Ireland as both sea going and river craft, and have varying designs according to how they were used.
Despite many changes and innovations, the essential design and qualities of the currach have remained largely unchanged.
Ireland has an unbroken tradition of usage from prehistoric times to the present. Currachs were used in the modern period for fishing, for ferrying and for the transport of goods and livestock, including sheep and cattle.

There is a rich social history surrounding the sea going currach that tell a story of the dangerous and tenuous lives of the subsistence fishing communities of Ireland. For the future, this ancient craft has considerable potential in terms of amenity and recreational activity besides its intrinsic heritage value.
