Bliadhna Mhath Ur (Happy New Year)

To everyone on the blog mailing list or those just having a browse- all the best for 2010 from all at GalGael.

We have another busy year ahead including getting started on a new fifty foot Birlinn and also organising our end of the Dorna project which will see traditional boats and visitors from various parts of France and Spain heading for the Firth of Clyde for an event organised by GalGael on the Isle of Cumbrae in the summer.

We finished 2009 with the Birlinn 400 conference at the Pearce Institute and many thanks to all those who made it possible. It was a fascinating event with wonderful presentations on different aspects of the history and design of the Birlinn as well as the culture surrounding it. If you would like to find out more about the Birlinn or contribute any information online then please visit-
