Bád Eddie - Cara na Mara

Scéal Bád Eddie - Cara na Mara


I 1977, tháinig bád darbh ainm ‘Cara na Mara’ isteach ar an trá i Machaire Chlochair, Gaoth Dobhair. Bád mór iascaireachta a bhí ann agus tugadh isteach í le cóiriú mar go raibh cúpla planc briste uirthi. Cas ar aghaidh go dtí 2017 agus tá an bád ansin go fóill agus tá aithne níos fhearr uirthi anois mar ‘Bád Eddie’.


Idir an dá linn, bhí sí le feiceáil san fhíseán ceoil “In a lifetime” de chuid Clannad/Bono, bhí sí ar leathanaigh iris VOGUE agus glacfadh na mílte pictiúr di. Ach do dhaoine óga an cheantair sna 70í ba shuíomh súgartha í, áit ina raibh siad abálta bheith ina bhfoghlaithe mara ar bord a long féin. Seo scéal ‘Bád Eddie'.


In 1977 the boat ‘Cara na Mara’ was towed into Magheraclogher Beach in Gweedore, Co Donegal. She was a large fishing boat and was on the beach as she needed two planks repaired. Fast forward to 2017 and the boat is still sitting on the beach, better known now as ‘Bád Eddie’. This is ‘Bád Eddie’s’ story.
