On the 10th October 1918, the German submarine UB-123 sank the Dún Laoghaire to Holyhead mail boat RMS Leinster off the Kish Bank with over 560 deaths. UB-123 was lost in a minefield with all of its crew while attempting to return to Germany. Most of them were aged 18 and 19. This talk will look at both sinkings.
