"Our club was established in 2010 and is strictly a DINGHY sailing club. Our burgee does depict the Levertís lighthouse and the sail of a 'Galway Hooker' - a traditional sail craft used along the west coast of Ireland. The [JFK Memorial] sculpture in Eyre Square also represents the sail of a Galway Hooker."

"Probably the newest lighthouse in Ireland, this only went up in 1977 to replace Mutton Island. It sits in the middle of Galway Bay guiding boats into the harbour."
