Court of the Silver King curragh at Clovelly, seen on YouTube
I can’t remember what took me to the the Court of the Silver King website, but while I was there I learned that our salmon-admiring friends are now engaged in building their third curragh – they must be pretty experienced by now.
I also spotted a link to thisof them rowing one of their earlier boats, and was struck by the sheer bouyancy and apparent lightness of the boat in action.
Inspired to search a little further, I found some further bits of curragh video:
Here’s a series of YouTube clips of curraghs racing.
And I also found this nice old. It’s marred by a horrid commercial watermark, but it’s still charming.
