To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic EI 1 MGY were active from the 8th to 21st of April as part of the Addergoole Titanic Society’s centenary programme of events.
In April 1912 fourteen men and women from the Parish of Addergoole, in North Mayo, set sail from Queenstown, Cork for a new life in America. Within days, eleven had died in the icy waters of the North Atlantic. Their ship, ‘Titanic’, sank on her maiden voyage.
Rural Ireland resounds with tales of emigration, steeped in the traditions of letting go. Addergoole will never let go of the memory of eleven neighbours and friends who disappeared with that “Ship of Dreams”.
