An original and imaginative examination of the effect of the Lusitania sinking on Ireland, The book acknowledges for the first time: - the heroic rescue work undertaken by local fishermen and lifeboats, - those who tended to the dead and succoured the living, - those who served on a Coroner's jury, - those who worked as bodyhunters scouring the coast in response to posted rewards, and much more. It examines the ripples cast upon Irish shores by the vanishing of the vessel after it was hit by a German torpedo. In particular it tells the stories of numerous Irish passengers and crew who were aboard the doomed vessel. It also highlights the rich legacy of history that resides in the Lusitania graves in Ireland
