A Kinsale company has paid an artistic tribute to victims of the RMS Lusitania ship.

Graepels has donated a portrait of the ship, which sank off the coast of the Old Head of Kinsale in 1907, to their local community.

The three by four metre aluminium sheet was created with 34,513 perforations of varying densities and pays tribute to the 1,201 victims who died on the ship as it made its way from Liverpool to New York during the First World War.

The work, entitled ‘Picture-Perf’, is on display at the Signal Tower at the Old Head of Kinsale.
