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.

See a related post on the centenary of the RMS Leinster here.
