Iconic boat to feature in TG4 documentary

A new TG4 documentary hopes to encapsulate the life and spirit of an iconic boat which has become a famous landmark for Gaoth Dobhair over the decades.

The project will come to fruition, under the direction of Sonia NicGiolla Éasbuig, a well known award winning producer and director.

She and her family have lived for many years in a beautiful location which overlooks the bay on which the well known boat, known locally as 'Bád Eddie' lies.

The boat, which was originally known as 'Cara na Mara' came to the area in the early 70's.

Over the years, the boat has played a significant role in the lives of locals; the boat has been the backdrop to first steps, driving lessons, celebrations and even marriage proposals.

So if you have any stories, memories, pictures or documents you would like to share you can do so by e-mailing info@ligid.com or sonia@ligidtv.com or by contacting Sonia on Facebook or Twitter.
