Meet the Members: Boyne Boats

Today for Meet the Members we are taking to the waters, to explore the river with Boyne Boats!

Under the expert supervision of a local guide, this is a rare opportunity to explore the Boyne Valley in the actual currach boats that featured in the Game of Thrones TV series 

Native to Ireland, and rooted in its history, the currach was traditionally made with a wooden frame and sealed with animal skins and hides.
