Leading the centenary commemoration of the RMS Leinster


With First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones

It was an honour to officiate at the Centenary Commemoration of the RMS Leinster in Dún Laoghaire, in my role as Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. I was joined by the First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones.


The RMS Leinster was sunk by a torpedo from UB-123 in October 1918, before the end of World War One. Over 550 perished. It was the greatest ever loss of life in the Irish Sea. I laid a wreath on behalf of the Irish State alongside First Minister Carwyn Jones of Wales.
