cian_corrigan1 Forgotten Monuments no. 6:

The Seamens Institute is located on the corner of Marlborough Street and Eden Quay. It was built in 1921 by Mitchell and Sons architects as part of the reconstruction of Dublin after the 1916 rising. Although there are far more recognisable monuments to the brave Irish who lost their lives at sea (ie City Quay & Dun Laoghaire), the plaque outside the Institute commemorates irish sailors during World War 1. It reads: "Seamens Institute - A tribute to the war service of seamen 1914-1919"

A total of 206,000 Irishmen served in the British forces during the First World War with a c. 13% fatality rate.
One such disaster was the sinking of the RMS Leinster by a German Submarine (UB-123) in 1918 outside Dublin Bay in which over 500 people lost their lives. A room within the Institute is dedicated to the RMS Leinster. On the 90th anniversary of the disaster, An Post launched a commemorative stamp in honour of the mail steamer and the 21 post office employees who died.
