October 10th will be the Centenary of the sinking of the RMS Leinster off the coast of Dun Laoghaire.
Monkstown Educate Together NS will observe a minute silent reflection at 9:50am on Wednesday 10th October 2018, in memory of all who perished following the sinking of the Royal Mail Steamer.
Between 09:30am and 09:40am, the RMS Leinster passed the Kish Light and shortly afterwards it was sunk by the German submarine, UB-123. What unfolded was the greatest maritime disaster in the Irish Sea, with over 500 lives lost. Just a week later the crew of the UB-123 also persisted in the North Sea.
