The June talk  is by Philip Lecane, historian and author, on the subject of the RMS Leinster sinking in October 1918.

While en route from Dun Laoghaire to Holyhead, RMS Leinster was torpedoed by a German submarine in the dying days of World War 1. Despite over 500 casualties this event has been largely forgotten.
