It's a new day and a better day's comin...

Ok so this is what has happened in the last couple of months. As can be seen above (it's a picture of the new bridge in Waterford) we are back in Ireland which of course is the home of currach building. If I wasn't bullshitting in previous posts then the process should be a little easier here than in Canada. Firstly I should be able to get the wood a lot easier, it should be cheaper and of course I should have more space to build it in.
I will be building it in a shed on a farmyaes, it's a 100 year plus building but it's completely dry and apart from some starlings who have taken up residence is all mine.
This building  was previously my workshop but after 6 or 7 years of neglect could really do with a good clean and some rearranging. I also have to reconnect the power there so I can have some light in.
I reckon all this will take a couple of weeks as I have a full time job and nixers (extrs) as well so not much time at the moment. Setting a tentative start date for the next currach as 17th of March which is of course Paddys Day
Watch this space...
