RTÉ Radio Doc Dives For Ireland's 'Sunken Treasures'

#Documentary - A new radio documentary highlighting the historical significance of the many shipwrecks that dot Ireland's shores will be broadcast tomorrow afternoon Saturday 20 November on RTÉ Radio 1.

'Sunken Treasures' is part of the Documentary on One strand and will be on the airwaves from 2pm tomorrow - but the 40-minute documentary is already available to stream or download from the RTÉ website HERE.

The programme, narrated by Patricia Baker, follows diving expert Eoin McGarry as he descends to the shipwreck of the SS Crescent City off Galley Head in Cork in search of her legendary treasure of silver coins and bars - some of which is still said to lie in the depts of Dhilligh Rock.

McGarry should be familiar to Afloat.ie readers for his wonderful tale of recovering artefacts from the undersea ruins of the Lusitania two years ago.

RTÉ Radio 1 has more on the new documentary HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
