Apologies, this should give some notable events in Irish maritime history, which have their anniversary around now. This service will be restored shortly. Meanwhile feel free to add some to the list, use the form on the "contact" tab. Thanks.
The original Lugnad was, according to legend, a "luamaire": that is a navigator or helmsman. He is credited with bringing his uncle, Saint Patrick, to Ireland. Lugnad's grave is in a ruined monastery on Inchagoill island in Lough Corrib, County Galway
