In Reply to: 2 crewmen from castlebar lost on titanic posted by md on April 27, 2002 at 14:35:00:
Last summer while on holidays in the maritimes (Canada) Hallifax to be precise, I visited the cemetary where there is a section for the lost souls of the Titanic disaster. I took lots of photos of the headstone etc. I have checked my photos this morning to see if there was the name Young, alas no! But I must mentioned that most of the headstones only had numbers identifying the graves. There was one headstone idenfied J. Dawson, this I would assume was the character portrayed in the latest James Cameron movie. Walking though this section was very moving and eerie, we visited in the evening and dusk had set in before we left. I had never heard of a Castlebar connection, but as you mentioned so much information has passed on with people from that era.
