Synopsis

The Irish Aboard Titanic by Senan Molony

The unspeakable tragedy of the Titanic disaster can only be fully appreciated through the tales of the people who were aboard on the night the ship went down. The Irish Aboard Titanic gives those people a voice, focusing on the Irish who were aboard the 'unsinkable' liner. In it are stories of agony, luck, self-sacrifice, dramatic escapes and heroes left behind. Senan Molony also records the heartache that continued long after that fateful night. In her wake the Titanic cast a long shadow over the families forced to endure the agonising wait to learn the fate of loved ones, over the lives of the survivors who had to start their lives anew and over those who lost relatives and friends. If you want to know about the Irish passengers and crew of the Titanic, this is the only book to have.

Reviews

The Irish Aboard explores an element of the Titanic's history which many of those accounts gloss over: the lives of the Irish passengers... Using baptismal certificates, census records, personal letters, news articles - anything he could find - Molony carefully pieces together the lives of Irish passengers before, during and, for the lucky ones, after the ship sank...For anyone interested in learning more about the Titanic's most overlooked demographic, this is the place to start. -- Sheila Langan 20120315 For a guide to navigating the Titanic and it's human dimension Irish Aboard Titanic by Senan Molony is worth recommending. -- Liam Kenny Leinster Leader 20120410 ...excellent and comprehensive account of the Irish aboard Titanic... Wexford People 20120418 ...takes a fresh look at one of the key events of the last century. East Cork Journal 20120412 A compelling read Bord Gais Energy Book Club
