Take a walk with local fisherman Ciaran Oliver around Galway city’s most photographed sights – Spanish Arch, The Long Walk and the Port of Galway. Hear how this area is steeped in history with tales of fishing in days gone by, how the Galway Hooker, the workboats of the Claddagh, brought fish for the women folk to sell at Spanish Arch.
Ciaran will then walk you around Galway’s docklands to the Galway Hooker Workshop Museum, and hear how his family helped establish the Galway Hooker Sailing Club, a community which works to preserve and restore the iconic Galway Hookers, including the most recent restoration, Loveen, a gleoitog hooker originally built in 1925.
