Seascapes has been broadcast on RTÉ radio for twenty years and in this book, Tom MacSweeney, RTÉ Marine Correspondent and presenter of the programme includes some of the fascinating stories to feature in the show over those years.
They cover the coastline of Ireland, featuring tales of tragedy and triumph alike. The book recalls the achievements of Irish mariners at home and in world history, stories of adventure and heroism, including the landing of the Munster Fusiliers at Gallipoli in World War One; why 400 people died to build Dun Laoghaire Harbour, the amazing Barna bog boat; the West Cork schooner attacked by the German Air Force; sleeping on the job at the Baily Lighthouse; the last of the Ringsend boat builders; the Derrynane sailor at the top of the world and an amazing submarine commander. Seascapes provides a wonderful perspective on this Island Nation.
