Traditional Irish boat building

Traditional Irish boat building

The Currach is a type of traditional Irish boat with a wooden frame, over which animal skins, canvas or in this case, ballistic nylon can be stretched over. This short film documents the history, planning, construction and launch of Currach Na Sceiri (Skerries Currach). Typically found on the west coast of Ireland, and sadly declining in numbers, Shane Holland decided to keep the tradition alive and designed a unique, hybrid version encompassing the best features from the traditional boats.
