As an island nation we have a deep love for the seas around us, but do we think about what lies beneath these seas? There are over 17,000 shipwrecks recorded in Irish waters. ‘Sunken Treasures’ highlights the historical significance and heritage of the thousands of shipwrecks that lie off the coast of Ireland. It brings to life the stories, people, artifacts and heritage intrinsic to these shipwrecks. We follow the deep-sea exploration of Waterford man, Eoin McGarry, as he dives to the Crescent City shipwreck off the coast of Cork, in search for sunken treasure and untold stories. In ‘Sunken Treasures’, we bring the listeners on a journey to the bottom of the sea and illuminate the wealth of our maritime history.
