The Fishermen of Dunserverick

The Fishermen of Dunserverick

These photographs were kindly contributed to the project by Jim Wilkinson, Chair of the Causeway Community Association, and son of James Wilkinson one of the men pictured.

These photographs depict local fishermen at Dunseverick in the 1930s.

These men, including the Gault brothers, Dan Mc Clelland and James Wilkinson, worked hard to fish along the Causeway Coast. They would bring their catch into Dunseverick harbour,and place it into handmade creels that they then carried on their backs up the steep slopes to the main road, where fish sellers waited to collect the fish to sell locally.


This record was collected as part of Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust’s Uncharted Histories of the Causeway Coast Project. Please click here to learn more about this project.
