A Rare Bird.

We were delighted to welcome the  38 metre three masted French sail training vessel Rara Avis into Kilrush Marina this week . Built in 1958 this Phillip Rhodes designed steel schooner is the largest vessel to enter the Marina since it opened. Arriving directly from Brest, Captain Loiselet expertly guided his ship through the lock with very little room to spare each side. The crew and trainees enjoyed the hospitality offered in Kilrush during their stay and were charmed by the attractive town and friendly locals.
