Lagan CurrachsLagan Currachs is a community boatbuilding project. Meeting twice a week over 9 months the group built a 33ft 12 person currach. The project involved 80 volunteers from across Belfast and beyond in different stages of the build. The boat itself was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund. Since her launch in 2017, 1000 people have rowed the boat in locations including Portaferry, Belfast lough and Rathlin. In 2018 Lagan Currachs joined with the Comcille group and the Row the Erne group and rowed across to Islay, Jura and Gigha over 8 days. The group have also welcomed community groups and charity members to row with them and enjoy the sense of community and shared adventure whilst out on the water.
