Named in honour of the two O'Clochartaigh brothers
- Meaircín and Joe -
who built her in 1987 in Mweenish.
In late 2010, John Linsey and family in Dublin, gave permission to the Bádóirí an Chladaigh to bring her to Galway in order to restore her.
2020 will be the year that ‘Meaircín Joe’ returns to Galway waters and will mark another proud moment for Bádóirí an Chladaigh as we continue to grow our fleet of beautiful trad boats.
