Celts and Currachs Festival
The second annual Celts and Currachs
Festival was held on the New London waterfront on August 25.
The festival features Celtic music, food, dance, and exhibition
rowing races of traditional Irish currachs.
Experienced rowers provided instruction in rowing
the currach, which is a light wood framed boat covered in
tar and canvas.
Rowers were allowed to enter exhibition races
to test their skills.
