An experienced Titanic diver, who also has family in Cork, will next week give a talk in the city on his experiences at the arguably the world's most famous shipwreck.
Paul Henri Nargeolet has spent more time than anyone else up close with the remains of the tragic ocean liner that lies at a depth of nearly 4km in the cold North Atlantic off Newfoundland.
As deep as that is, it's not the furthest below the surface he's plumbed, as he broke the world record of almost 11,000 metres.
But as he tells the Irish Examiner, he's much more concerned with preserving the legacy of the likes of the Belfast-built Titanic than his own achievements.
Next Friday 18 Octover, Nargeolet will host a talk at UCC's Boole Lecture Theatre 4 where he will discuss his work with the company charged with salvaging objects from the Titanic site, as well as the controversy over this practice.
The talk is also a fundraiser for his grandson's Educate Together national school in Cork city centre.
