with Hilary Wallner and David Cotter
This year is the centenary of the sinking by u-boat of the merchant ships S.S. Adela and S.S. Hare in the Irish Sea. The lecture will explore the impact of unrestricted submarine warfare during the First World War on the life of Dublin Port and uncover the human impact the sinking of these ships had on the dockland families of the lost crew members; Hilary’s grandfather, Able Seaman Joseph Hopkins, lost his life in the sinking of the S.S. Hare.
Ringsend Libary, Fitzwilliam Street on 4th October at 6.30pm
