The Scottish launch of the Dorna Project took place at Portsoy Traditional Boat Festival, Moray Coast on 2 July. GalGael's marquee with displays of wood carving, pole lathe work, wool craft, pottery and leatherwork housed a Dorna information stall for the remainder of the Festival until 5 July.
The event was well attended by the public and traditional boat community alike. It was a great opportunity to talk to people about Dorna and the potential benefits to future traditional boat building. Our partners from the Causeway Coast Maritime Heritage Group joined us for the event and were on hand to talk about their work conserving some of the rich maritime culture of the North Irish Coast and sailing in their currach the Colmcille.
