Souls of the Sea Summary

Souls of the Sea by Damien Tiernan

In January 2007, within the space of only six days, three large fishing boats - the Pere Charles, the Honey Dew II and the Renegade - capsized and sank off the south east coast of Ireland. There were eleven crewmen on board the three vessels. In a tragic week, seven fishermen lost their lives in storm-force winds and waves.

In Souls of the Sea, Damien Tiernan gets to the heart of the tragedy that stunned Ireland and made headlines around the world. He talks to the families of those who drowned, as well as to the survivors from the sunken boats; to the rescue crews and weather forecasters, and to the ordinary people who turned out in their hundreds to search the shoreline for clues as to what happened.

A vivid picture emerges of brave and resourceful men and women who continue to forge unique communities in the face of adversity.

Souls of the Sea is a memorial to the seven men who were lost.
