Galway Hookers Set Sail
Original Oil painting 40 x 80 cms (32 x 16 inches) presented in a contemporary white box frame.
Driving through Connemara, I saw a sign for the regatta. It would start the next day from Roundstone Harbour. What luck, I always wanted to see the regatta. I had no choice; I was compelled to stay! I found accommodation close by. The following day I took up a position just up from the harbour in beautiful, quaint Roundstone and watched with joy as the Galway Hookers, proudly displaying their red sails, took off through the bay. The currachs raced alongside as shouts of glee were all around. It was a site to behold.
