KISH RACE REMEMBERS RMS LEINSTER

Posted in Local Events by Niall on 24 Sep 2018.

Pictured during yesterday's (23.09) poignant Kish Boat Race, which remembered the sinking of the RMS Leinster. The centenary for which takes place next month. The mail boat was torpedoed by a German submarine not long after it left Kingstown Harbour on its way to Holyhead - resulting in the loss of 569 souls.
