Invite to Gathering of families from Leinster Ship disaster

A “Gathering” of all Mail Boat Leinster descendants will take place in the Royal Marine Hotel, Dún Laoghaire, County Dublin, on Sunday 17th June commencing at 3.00p.m. 

The Leinster ship was sunk off Dún Laoghaire in 2018, with the loss of over 550 lives.

Plans are well underway to mark the centenary next October which will include an official state commemorative event.  

The sinking of the mail boat proved to be the worst ever recorded disaster on the Irish Sea and arguably the most significant World War 1 event to impact the Irish nation.
