Class on the Barge
For this year’s Arts Festival the Heritage Boats Association is bringing seven or eight of their fleet of barges to Mountshannon Harbour. The owners have invited the local national schools to visit and learn about a time when the barges were regular traffic on our waterways and a vital part of our community. The Burke family will visit the schools and host tours on the barges for the children
