It was May 7th, 1915.  The U-Boat took aim.  The torpedo fired.  And the Lusitania sank.  Almost 1,200 people lost their lives, dozens of whom were Irish.

Inside tomorrow's Irish Independent, we publish a specially-commissioned magazine - Lusitania 100, commemorating one hundred years since this tragic attack.  Revealing fascinating stories from the historic event and examining some questions that remain unanswered, a century later.

Saturday begins with the Irish Independent.  Before you make up your mind, open it.
