Few, today, are aware of the untold horrors that have occurred along the Irish coastline, from Carlingford Lough to the Tuskar Rock. The first of its kind, the stories in this book are accompanied by photographs and images of the ships to help visualise the scale of the disasters. Pat Ferguson recounts the days before sea-faring technology, when ruthless ship owners sacrificed their men in the pursuit of profit. This unique work recounts the many untimely deaths which have occurred under the unrelenting force of the sea. Never before has there been a catalogue of such accounts of bravery and misadventure on the Irish Sea. The numerous fearsome tales which span over a hundred years provide detailed accounts of the fates of the RMS Leinster and the Seahorse whilst also referring to Lambay Island and the disasters at Tuskar Rock. "Troubled Waters" provides detailed recounts of the dangerous associated with the Irish coast. It includes a foreword by Eamon Gilmour TD, Labour Party Leader.
