Welcome to the website of Addergoole Titanic Society
In April 1912 fourteen men and women from Addergoole, in North Mayo, set sail from Queenstown, Cork for a new life in America. Within days, eleven had died in the icy waters of the North Atlantic. Their ship, ‘Titanic’, sank on her maiden voyage.
Rural Ireland resounds with tales of emigration, steeped in the traditions of letting go.The small parish of Addergoole in Mayo will never let go of the memory of those fourteen neighbours and friends, eleven of whom perished with that "Ship of Dreams".
Time brought us solace. We cherish their memory and marked the 100th anniversary with a very memorable Irish Titanic Centenary Programme. The Cultural Week, 8th - 15th April 2012, drew some 12,500 people to our small village.
We thank you all for your tremendous support and donations which helped make this an exceptional event. Throughout 2012 our story has resonated across the globe with TV crews and reporters flocking from all over to capture this moment in history.
