Episode 16 – Diving to The Titanic – The Celtic Mist Porthole and Harbour Speeding

There are many aspects of the maritime world and MARITIME IRELAND covers them all. On this edition of the MARITIME IRELAND RADIO SHOW, we go deep sea into the darkest areas of the North Atlantic, where an Irish diver descends to the wreck site of the TITANIC in a new type of submersible. “This can be dangerous, but exciting work,” says Rory Golden, one of Ireland’s leading divers, who is on his third mission to the wreck site and remembers the Irish people, “those most important to us,” as he descends to the depths and describes what he sees.


Also on the programme, what was seen through the port hole of the yacht once owned by former Taoiseach Charles Haughey …and, while more leisure craft on the water are a welcome increase in maritime interest, the dangers of speeding in harbours are discussed.
