I attended the launch of the dlr Libraries Des Branigan exhibition, in the dlr LexIcon, yesterday. During the ceremony, I had the pleasure of hearing a rendition of the emotional ballad written for the sinking of the RMS Leinster, sung by William Byrne (see below), who is a great-grandson of the chief stoker on the RMS Leinster and the founder of the Leinster Commemoration Committee.
A moving tribute to those lost when the #RMSLeinster was torpedoed in #DublinBay 100 years ago, at the launch of the @DLR_Libraries Des Branigan exhibition @dlrLexIcon. Well done to @M_T_K_2_2_6_2 and all involved. pic.twitter.com/BlZc9xBho1
