About this event

Our speaker is Pat McCarthy. Author of The Irish revolution 1912 – 1923 and Waterford and the 1916 Rising, among other books.

For most of the Second World War the Irish Sea was a quiet naval haven where outward-bound convoys assembled, inward-bound convoys dispersed, and the escort vessels of the Royal Navy trained and prepared for the Battle of the Atlantic – all without interruption from German U-boats or aircraft.

There were however times when the Germans focussed their attention on the Irish Sea, most notably in 1941 and in 1945, and it became a very dangerous stretch of water for the ships plying their trade there, including the small number of Irish coastal vessels.
