Tantalising wreck found in secret Foyle location

A group of divers will take to the Foyle later this week in a bid to identify a mystery wreck discovered on the river bed.

Paschal Lawrence, one of the divers set to explore the wreck, says it is still too early to be sure what type of vessel has been found in the Foyle, at a location currently being kept a secret.

Initially it was thought the wreck could have been a German U-boat but now it seems more likely the wreck is that of a X-craft, a World War II British submarine, considering the key role Derry and the Foyle played in the Battle of the Atlantic.

“We can not be 100% sure about what exactly it is. Hopefully this week we will get a camera down there and go and have a closer look,” Paschal told the Derry Journal.
