'The Last Voyage of the RMS Leinster: Remembering the Dun Laoghaire & Holyhead Mailboat'

More Irish lives were lost when the Dún Laoghaire to Holyhead Mail Boat sunk in 1918 than on the Titanic in 1912 or the Lusitania in 1915. Most of the 540 plus lives lost on the Leinster were Irish while on the Titanic the number of Irish deaths totaled 78 and on the Lusitania 140.

This book ‘The Last Voyage of the Leinster’ captures the human aspects of the loss of the Leinster to so many families not only Irish but also Welsh, English, Scottish, Canadian, Australian, New Zealanders and American who were unlucky to have been traveling on that day, almost a century ago. The Leinster, which was armed and also carrying soldiers returning to the war, was sunk in a wartime act, just a month before the end of World war 1, by the German U Boat 123.
