Good one Shaun. I came across the SS Glenravel lately and a map to show where it was sunk. She was built by the Ailsa Shipbuilding Co. Ltd in Troon in 1906. She lies at about 50 metres down.

In 1915, Trostan Mines were long gone and Essathohan was only producing bauxite. Parkmore and Rathkenny are the most likely sources for the cargo which would have been trained to Ballymena and then Belfast for shipment.
