Aongus O’Cualain holds his daughter Seodin Ni Cualain in his traditional Galway Hooker boat, which dips its sails in reverence to MacDara’s Island, off the coast of Galway, Ireland, July 16, 2016. Seafarers and other members of the Carna community make an annual pilgrimage to MacDara’s Island, home to a 6th Century oratory, to attend a mass for St. MacDara, the patron saint of fishermen. The pilgrimage is believed to keep seafarers safe throughout the year. REUTERS/Clodagh Kilcoyne
