Donald S Murray: A Century on from the Iolaire disaster

About Donald S Murray: A Century on from the Iolaire disaster

On that terrible night the HMY Iolaire smashed into rocks and sank, killing some 200 servicemen on the very last leg of their long journey home from war.

As the Women Lay Dreaming is a deeply moving novel about passion constrained, coping with loss and a changing world, it explores how a single event can so dramatically impact communities, individuals and, indeed, our very souls.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Donald S Murray: A Century on from the Iolaire disaster are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
