Galway Hookers Set Sail

550.00

Driving through Connemara, Co. Galway on a lovely summers day, I saw a sign for the regatta. I couldn’t believe my luck that I would get the chance to see the Galway Hookers set sail in the regatta. It was due to start the next day from Roundstone Harbour.  I have always wanted to see the regatta but never seemed to be able to get myself in the right place at the right time. Choice made – 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 a small fishing village.  I watched with joy as the Galway Hookers proudly displaying their red sails, took off through the bay. The currachs raced alongside and shouts of glee were all around. Young and old were excited and cameras and tripods were everywhere.  It was a site to behold and a lovely memory that I want to share with you.
