Being surrounded by water, a lot of our festivals feature the water in a big way. Whether it’s the Atlantic or the Shannon estuary.
Querrin Regatta is on Sunday May 31st. A great opportunity to see currach racing with wonderful views across to Scattery Island. Currachs are the traditional canoes of the Loop Head peninsula and were used in times past for both fishing and transport.
These sturdy and versatile vessels were constructed from a frame of wooden ribs, or hoops, traditionally with animal hides stretched over it, and more recently canvas.
