There will be a public launch of the RMS Leinster Centenary Commemoration on Wednesday, 5 September at the Ucheldre Centre, Holyhead. The evening will commence with light refreshments at 6.30pm, followed by an illustrated talk by Dr. Michael Roberts of Bangor University.
Dr. Roberts has spent much time locating and image scanning many of the WW1 wrecks around the Welsh coast, particularly those close to Anglesey. His talk will be a fascinating insight into how many ships were lost to enemy U-boats during the Great War. He will also make reference to the wreck of RMS Leinster, which lies in Irish waters.
Information regarding other events planned for October 2018 will also to presented.
Efforts have been made to locate as many relatives as possible of those on board the Mailboat on 10 October 1918 and to inform them of the commemoration. If you are a relative we would very much like you to make contact.
The event is open to the public and is free to attend.
