Corrib history

This site’s focus is usually on recent history, say from about 1750 onwards, but Captain Trevor Northage has been investigating inland waterways transport on Lough Corrib over rather a longer period: his finds range from a logboat 4500 years old to a Victorian racing yacht.

Explore the Corrib wrecks on his website here; listen to him on BBC Radio 4 here. There’s a player at the top of the page; the Corrib bit starts about 9 minutes and 50 seconds in.
