We thank Presenter, John Greene, for advance information on this evening’s programme. (S.R.)
This week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, is the second of three
programmes entitled ‘The sinking of the Lusitania – Myths, mysteries and the West Cork connection’ The passenger liner was sunk by a German attack
submarine off the Old head of Kinsale on Friday May 7th 1915, with the loss
of 1, 198 lives.
This week on programme Two……
* We deal with the part played by Courtmacsherry Lifeboat after the
sinking – Using the exact words spoken and written in the aftermath of the
sinking, local people play the parts of crew members, witnesses and
* UK based naval historian Professor Eric Grove clarifies a point
made in previous documentaries, that rescue services took their time in
responding, for fear of being torpedoed themselves.
We look at the background
and fate of the Cork passengers on board Lusitania, and continue the story
of Julia o’Neill from Rosscarbery.
Join John Greene for “Where the road takes me”, this Sunday evening at 7 – on C103.
