The Titanic & Athlone
This site has two subject areas: The first is the famous story of the Titanic. The second is that of its connection to our locality - Athlone, Ireland. The Titanic is an important piece of history for many reasons. There are the elements of human tradgedy and the implications the disaster would have for all passenger shipping in the future. But the Titanic was also an important symbol of the industrial revolution. For Ireland the ship evokes many feelings as the majority of those travelling were leaving behind a county where famine was still a recent memory. For all these reasons the Titanic is now a large part of the history syllabus in Irish National schools. This site is a useful study aid for those researching the topic. However it is also a record of those people who history will never individually record.
