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-currachs/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

Our Story

Iomramh is the literal translation from the Gaelic for to row. Iomramh is a cultural association, founded in Barcelona by Mark Redden (Boat-builder) and Aidan King (Business) in 2007. Ari Bastart (Barcelona born, handles publicity and admin) and Audun Waage (Norwegian born, promotion) joined the association in 2010. Donal Quinn has since joined the team as the scope of the event necessitated further expertise.

Irish in Barcelona

Irish in Barcelona is a platform built to help the Irish community here communicate and interact. As well as helping out with the St Patricks Festival and Currach Regatta since 2016, we organise events and promote any and all Irish-related activity in Barcelona.
