Help needed to restore old canal boat in Sallins
13:30 Thursday 6th of December 2018

Locals in Sallins are looking for help to restore an old barge boat sitting in the Canal.

The 40ft UK-built Dartline vessel, which was built in 1980, needs a lot of work to return it to its former glory.

Enthusiast Ken Garland is looking for help from volunteers to help with the project.

Ken told the Kildare Post: "If anybody can lend a hand or assist us with materials or expertise, we'd love to hear from you.

"We want to bring this boat back to life and make it into a nice visitor attraction in Sallins.”

Anybody who can help, is asked to contact Ken at (085) 190 5279.
