Saturday May 19th – family fun on the river

Coming up in two weeks, on Saturday May 19th, is a unique event for families and children – a chance for you and the kids to see traditional Limerick Gandelow boats racing on the river for the first time in 65 years.

For the past six months local school children working alongside master shipwrights from Ireland, UK and France have been building and crafting a fleet of five gandelows – this week is painting week so it’s ‘all hands on deck’, even Molly’s.

DaddyMoo will be on one of the racing teams so Mommy & MollyMoo will be the loudest people on Harvey’s Quay for the first of three races, starting between 2.30 and 3pm – will you join us to cheer him on :)

Full details of the day’s events here on the Ilen Wooden Boatbuilding School website
