Ireland one step ahead


I read with interest the article on the planned recreation of the move of stone monoliths from Wales to Stonehenge.

What surprised me was that there was no mention of the fact that currachs are still in use in the West of Ireland. Has anyone visited the Aran Islands and drawn on the islanders' practical experience both in the construction and use of these remarkable boats?
