    Thumbing through the online news this morning I stumbled across this item. New book claims little-known safety rule may have doomed the Titanic and the 1,500 on board | Daily Mail Online I don't think I need to say too much more. :confused:

    Titanic: The New Evidence

    I've been a lurker here for a long time. Currently watching this documentary on Channel 4 here in the U.K. I don't know what to make of this at all. Anyone else watching or planning to watch this?

    1245 A Time to Go by Senan Molony

    Have just read this - am going to have to go back and give it a re-read to sort through all the arguments and evidence that Senan has assembled. Fascinating material. It might have some bearing on the statements in Lowe's affidavits regarding the timing of events - I'd always assumed that Lowe...

    Lusitania An Irish Tragedy by Senan Molony

    The earliest copies of Lusitania: An Irish Tragedy have arrived at the Molony residence, and the author seems quite pleased with the end result. Scan of the cover looks tremendous! I'm looking forward to getting a copy down under - Sen showed me some of the images he was going to use when I was...

    A Holy Grail The Missing Depositions by Senan Molony

    This is an interesting aspect of the disaster . . . closeting the surviving crew members on board a ship, and getting their stories before releasing them ashore. I think it's very characteristic of a company's strategy of damage control. Notably, it was the White Star Line's lawyers conducting...

    Why did White Star settle with Whiteley By Senan Molony

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this article and felt that Senan Molony dealt well with the conflicting evidence, with the possible exception of his conclusion. My knowledge of the workings of the Law is practically nil however and, rather than assume that Senan's conclusion is in error, I thought...

    A Garbled Titantic Smolonyesque Brilliance

    Just took receipt yesterday of Senan Molony’s new work, ‘A Garbled Titantic’. Those of you on Jeff Newman’s excellent Titanic Mailing List would be familiar with the serialisation of the work that he has been posting. Much as in the days of Dickens when readers rushed to get the latest...

    A Tender Named America by Senan Molony

    I see that popular demand has been met and the tender piece has gone up - and what a beautiful combination of hard research and exquisitely evocative writing. I read it enthralled...we've discussed here before the question of Irish nationalism and the Home Rule debates, and it was a pleasure to...

    Bruce Ismay and the Ring's Taunt by Senan Molony

    Thanks, Senan, for the excellent article (and manner of writing) on Bruce Ismay. Your point about his great memory is well taken, but I look at it differently. I think you were emphasizing that because Ismay was haunted by the memory of Titanic. To me, I want to know where that memory was...

    The Real Jack Dawson by Senan Molony

    This is a very interesting article, about Joseph Dawson - - not at all like the fictional guy from Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. I recommend it to everyone.

    Titanic's Rockets - Senan Molony

    Senan, Haven't had the pleasure of "meeting" you here before, but I just wanted to say that your article was excellent. It was something that I had always wondered about, but never knew all the details that you have provided. You brought me through the thought process and that also helped and...
