The wreck of the WM Barkley

A topographic seafloor image shows the partially buried wreck of the WM Barkley lying at a water depth of 56 metres. 

The picture puts to rest a 94-year-old mystery as to the precise location of the vessel, which was torpedoed by a German submarine during the First World War off the coast of Dublin.
