A plaque commemorating four people, who left from Cahir to travel on the doomed Titanic will be unveiled in Cahir, Co.Tipperary this weekend.
The plaque will bear the names of Roger Tobin, Kate Peters, Kate McCarthy and Kate Connolly, who all bought their tickets in Cahir at a local White Star Line agent’s office.
The centenary of the disaster will be commemorated on Sunday starting with mass in Kilmoyler Church at 10.30am. Following this wreaths will be laid on the family plots of those associated.
Special ‘Titanic Menus,’ will be available at lunchtime on Sunday, to the public, in eateries in Cahir, including the Cahir House Hotel and The Galtee Inn. At approximately 3:00pm on Sunday afternoon, a plaque will be unveiled by members of the Peters, Tobin and McCarthy families, on Castle Street in the town. A letter that was written by Kate McCarthy, will also be read aloud and this will be followed by refreshments, music, storytelling and an exhibition in Morrissey’s Bar.
