On the 10th of April 1912 the Titanic was just about to set sail. Everyone was waiting for the red rope ladder to come down so that the people could get on. Poor people were counting their coins to see if they had enough to get on. Other people were standing on the pavement waving at their family saying goodbye.
Four days later news came in and it wasn’t good. The Titanic was just after sinking. Everyone with family on the ship felt a bit queasy and were squirming with sadness yet hopeful they might have survived.
A terrible day in Irish History.
