    Default RMS Lusitania

    18 Minutes That Shocked The World

    RMS Lusitania was torpedoed by a German U-boat on 7 May 1915. The luxury passenger liner was crossing the Atlantic from New York to Liverpool when the German submarine U-20 fired without warning. After a second explosion the cause of which is still debated the ship quickly sank. It went under in 18 minutes, killing 1,200 of almost 2,000 passengers and crew on board.

    Lest we forget,Lusitania sinking on May 7, 1915. Off the Old Head of Kinsale.

    A few years ago the Merchant Navy Association from Barry Dock in Wales, as they looked out across the sunlit waters 15 miles south of Courtmacsherry, near Kinsale, on a day when the weather was similar to that of the sinking all strong men who had seen and experienced a lot at sea themselves and lost companions and relations during the Second World War, all had tears in their eyes, imagining what it must have been like for those aboard the Lusitania.
