    Finally, Submarines hit the Theater...

    The Irish are so proud of John Holland, they are finally going to memorialize him in a play,

    "The life story of an Irish inventor who became the father of the modern submarine is about to be staged.

    Submarine Man captures the tale of John P Holland, one of Ireland's lesser-known heroes. The success of his invention, which could travel 800km on the surface of the sea and 40km submerged, led Holland to form a company which secured a contract to build a submarine for the US Navy."

    According to the producers, "Submarine Man is a hilarious and yet at times incredibly moving account of one of Ireland’s greatest unsung heroes."

    Nothing here.
