Heritage Week in Clarecastle 2018
Clarecastle & Ballyea Heritage & Wildlife Group
“Your Long Barrelled Gun of the Sea”
With a pair of rare 19th C. large punt guns, and a 1960s punt boat that was made by Tommy Considine as centrepieces, the Heritage Group staged a maritime exhibition of old fishing photographs and other artefacts that reflected the centuries-old link that Clarecastle has had with the River Fergus and the sea. The exhibition took place on Thursday 23 August 2018 and again on Sunday 26 August 2018 in the Men’s Shed.
The exhibition has received funding from Clare County Council under the Community Arts Grant Scheme 2018.
