The Story of the Titanic

A talk by Dr Alicia St Leger

Thursday 31st May at 6pm At the Alliance Française de Cork Gallery

Talk will be followed by finger food and drinks reception to mark the end of Spring term 2012.

Dr. Alicia St. Leger will give an illustrated talk exploring the fascinating story of the White Star Line’s most famous ship – Titanic.  She will examine the background to the creation of the Titanic and her sister ships Olympic and Britannic, each of which was the largest ship in the world when built.  

The last port of call for the Titanic on her maiden voyage was Queenstown (now Cobh) in County Cork.  The ship sank four days later, on 15 April 1912, with the loss of about 1,500 lives.  Since 1912 the tragedy has been recalled in books, films and in many other media. The Titanic is probably the most famous ship in the world and, in this centenary year, continues to fascinate all who explore her story.

Admission free – all welcome!
