The Irish government has released a “Wreck Viewer,” which maps thousands of shipwrecks around Ireland as far back as the 16th century.
It includes RMS Lusitania, a British ocean liner torpedoed by a German U-boat in 1915, an event that helped bring the US into World War I.
Details of thousands of other destroyed ships remain unknown.

A new map shows thousands of shipwrecks scattered around Ireland since the 16th century — and it shows how many maritime disasters are still a total mystery.

The “Wreck Viewer,” released by the Irish government’s National Monuments Service this April, shows the approximate locations of 3,554 shipwrecks across a 355,000 square mile area around Ireland and the North Atlantic Ocean.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
