Art Description

Collage: Oil, Spray Paint, Ink, Pencil and Acrylic on Cardboard and Paper.

In October 1918, just weeks before the end of the First World War, RMS Leinster was torpedoed by a German U-Boat twelve nautical miles out from Dun Loaghaire, with the tragic loss of 590 lives. The first torpedo struck the port side, a direct hit in the mail sorting office. The ensuing explosion ripped through the ship, blowing a hole out through the starboard side. As RMS Leinster maneuvered to return to Dun Laoghaire, a second torpedo struck, sending her to the bottom.
