PEOPLE will gather in Cobh this Sunday to remember all those who died in the Titanic tragedy 104 years ago.
The annual event in Cobh, the last port of call of the Titanic, is to remember all those who died when the ship sank but in particular the passengers who boarded in Cobh.
The ceremony, organised by Cobh Tourism, will start at the later time of 3.30pm this year. A colour party from the Cobh Branch ONE (Organisation of National Ex-Eervice Personnel) will parade from the Old Town Hall at Lynch’s Quay to the Titanic Memorial in Pearse Square. A ceremony of prayers and wreath laying will have musical honours provided by the Commodore Male Voice Choir. Wreaths will be laid at the Titanic Memorial before the proceedings move to the Promenade.
The ceremonies will continue adjacent to the pier where passengers boarded the tenders to take them to the Titanic. The names of the 79 passengers who boarded the Titanic in Cobh on April 11, 1912 and who perished in the freezing waters of the North Atlantic less than four days later will be read out.
