Lurgan Logboat, DUGOUT CANOE
Addergoole Bog, Lurgan, Co. Galway
Housed at the National Museum of Ireland - Archaeology, Dublin
This unfinished vessel was found in Lurgan townland, Addergoole Bog, near Tuam, Co. Galway in 1902.
It measures 15.25m in length and is one of the longest in Europe. It is made of a hollowed oak tree and is wider at the stern than at the bow.
It has a central ridge running along the floor, probably an internal keel.
Dugout canoes were used over a long period of time in Ireland from the Bronze Age to the later Middle Ages. This example has been dated to around 2500 BC.

아일랜드 수도 국립고고학박물관이 소장한 기원전 2천500년 무렵 통나무배인데 어쩐 이유에서인지 만들다가 말았다. 1902년 골웨이Galway 주州 투암Tuam에서 가까운 애더굴 습지 Addergoole Bog, Lurgan 타운랜드(townland란 아일랜드 지방자치 하위 단위)에서 발견됐다. 길이 15.25미터, 참나무 속을 파내서 만들었다. 뱃머리보다 선미가 넓다. 아일랜드에서 이런 통나무부내는 청동기시대 이래 후기 중세시대에 이르기까지 장기간 사용되었다.
Addergoole Bog is located on the eastern shores of Lough Corrib approximately 8 km north of Galway city in County Galway. This site is part of the Lough Corrib SAC (000297) and was previously a proposed NHA (former site code 000223). The River Clare runs to the south and the Cregg River to the north. The Galway to Headford road runs to the east of the present extent of the site. The site may be accessed from a bog road, leading west from the Galway to Headford road, which runs along the south of the bog. It should be noted that the bog road is normally closed with a locked gate to deter fly-tipping.
