The Old Lady

The Old Lady

€10.00

May a boat have a soul? Four generations of an Irish family, the McDonaghs, firmly believe it. The Old Lady tells the poignant story of an iconic Galway hooker and her owners: Braendán, Seán, Pádraig and Conor. For them all the Old Lady represents their choice of a free, independent life, driven by variable winds and by their inner strength. Their stories are intrinsically linked to that of the boat through many ordinary and extraordinary events.
Far beyond being a means of livelihood, the boat is a source of emotional support and inspiration for the McDonaghs and for the people related to them in various ways. The Old Lady represents the living symbol of a legacy spanning across a century, bridging the lives, the experiences and the dreams of the old and the young generations.
