Lusitania 100th Anniversary
7th May, 2015.
There have been many commemorations of the sinking of Lusitania in the Cork area today. For divers, this shipwreck with its associated human and historical importance, has a particular intrigue.

I am regularly asked if I have ever dived the wreck, and I have not, but did assist on an Irish diving expedition in 2004. Here is the resulting article, published in the Irish diving magazine, 'SubSea':
