About Us

Iomramh is the literal translation from the Gaelic for to row.

Combining Art & Culture

Iomramh´s underlying purpose is to put interactive creative projects into existence. Our first project was the launching of a Currach on St. Patrick’s Day 2008 on Barceloneta Beach. That project was documented and screened on TV3. http://www.ccma.cat/tv3/alacarta/thalassa/els-urrachs/video/4281010/

Hundreds of people have rowed in our boats. 6 currachs have been built in Barcelona and for St Patrick’s Day we have organized and run seven Currach regattas in the port of Barcelona – the only event of its kind in the Mediterranean
