Subsea Survey Services, based in Kinsale harbour, took part in the recovery of what is believed to be a propellor from stricken WW1 german submarine UC-42.
All indications are that the submarine was destroyed by a mine that she had just dropped while mine-laying 5nm south of Roches Point, Cork harbour.
Working together with Mizen Archaeology and Blackwater Sub-Aqua club the propellor was lifted by m/v HARPY and brought ashore at the Main Pier, Kinsale.
The propellor was immediately taken away to begin desalination and conservation. (Photo courtesy Mizen Archaeology)
