"An Loveen" Launch

The Galway Hookers Sailing Club, in association with the Port of Galway Sea Scouts, would like to officially invite you to the official launch of The "Loveen", a 96 year old fully refurbished club. Nicky Dolan bought it from a man from the Claddagh in Galway, shortly before his sudden death in 2011. The following year the boat was placed in the care of the Port of Galway Sea Scouts. The refurbishment of the boat began in 2019. The refurbishment was led by Cóilín Ó hIarnáin and his sons, Clann Oliver and a crew of volunteers from the Galway Hookers Sailing Club. We are delighted and proud to relaunch it. On this Saturday. the 16th of October, we wish you could come and join us outside the Shore Hall and Nimmo Pier from 2p.m. to 4p.m. It is a celebration and blessing of the boat.
