Founded in 1993, Meitheal Mara ‘Community or Workers of the Sea’ is a community boatyard in the heart of Cork city. We are a Company Limited by Guarantee, a registered charity and training centre.
Meitheal Mara has grown from a small idea into an internationally recognised leader in community-based maritime services, underpinned by the energy and skill of committed and enthusiastic staff members.
Our vision is: Growth through maritime heritage. Na báid agus saol na ndaoine.
The mission of Meitheal Mara is to integrate and expand personal and community development opportunities through the medium of traditional boatbuilding, maritime recreation and maritime heritage. Our primary object is to grow and integrate Cork city’s maritime recreation and tourism sector at a purpose built river-side site: the Meitheal Mara Maritime Hub.
