The Titanic sank 110 years ago

épave du Titanic

110 years ago, on the morning of April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic sank on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, killing more than 1,500 people.

In Ireland, the maritime giant built in Belfast made a stopover, especially in Queenstown, now the coastal town of County Cork in southern Ireland. The city was home to 2.5 million of the 6 million Irish immigrants to North America between 1848 and 1950. 123 passengers boarded Queenstown, and only 44 survived the sinking.

On April 14, the “sinking” ship collided with an iceberg on its way to New York. The Titanic was considered one of the safest ships ever built, but sank within three hours.

Most of the victims were crew and shipboard crew who worked tirelessly on the ship even as it began to sink in the cold sea.
