This Thursday, March 5th, Cormac Lowth will be talking to us about the sailing trawlers of Ringsend. From 1819 to the immediate aftermath of the First World War, a large fleet of sailing beam-trawlers, known as smacks, existed in Ringsend and Dublin Bay. Many of these fishing vessels and their crews originated in Brixham in Devon and their fishing activities remained in a virtually unchanged state for about a century.

The talk starts at 8 PM at the club, and all are welcome. More details, can be found in the event page.
