Margaret Storey | Donegal County Council
Coming soon… we are excited to announce that there will be three Virtual Reality experiences launched in Donegal (Ireland) this summer! The third VR experience dates back to the early 20th century, World War 1 era.
TIDE Partners, Donegal County Council, Derry City and Strabane District Council, Devon County Council and CLARTE (experts in VR technology in Pays de la Loire, France) have got together to create an exciting VR experience which takes the ‘Lieutenant’ into a Kite Balloon which is part of a convoy of merchant ships coming from North America and heading for Lough Foyle!
You are welcomed onto HMS Margaret, a Royal Navy Destroyer which was launched in 1917 by Captain McConnell. Their mission is to secure the convoy that will resupply precious goods such as food and necessities to the forces at the front of the battle. The Lieutenant will have to keep a watchful eye for U-Boats or even mine fields for several hours! Once the Kite Balloon is hooked up, the basket, balloon and Lieutenant is raised up to over 1,000 feet!
Get familiar with Destroyers, Cruisers, Naval Trawlers, Minesweepers, Airships & Aircraft as you travel past Malin Head & Inishtrahull!
