Relatives have gathered in a tiny Irish village to remember those who died in the Titanic disaster.
Lahardane, in the parish of Addergoole, lost 11 of its own when the luxury liner went down 100 years ago.
It has become known as Ireland’s “Titanic village.”
“I’m honoured to remember my aunt,” said Davey Donoghue, nephew of one of the victims.
“With the passing of time it becomes easier to speak of the tragedy and the effect it had on the family.”
A memorial ceremony was also held aboard a cruise ship, which travelled from America to the site of the sinking in the North Atlantic.
It was joined alongside by another liner, which had set off from Southampton.
There was a two minute silence to mark the centenary, and the names of those who perished were read aloud.
The Titanic went down in April 1912 after striking an iceberg.
