Wreath laying ceremony 12:00 hrs at the City Quay Memorial on Sunday 17th November 2019 followed by light refreshments in Stella Maris SeafarersCentre 3 Beresford Place.
The wreath-laying event at 12.00 noon along the City Quay Memorial monument, is dedicated in honor of Seafarers lost at sea while serving on Irish Merchant ships during WW2.
Inscribed on the Memorial are names of merchant vessels and crews who lost their lives as battles raged in the Atlantic and surrounding seas, while Irish seafarers tried to ensure vital supplies of food reached our shores despite our neutrality. Among the casualties of war was Irish Shipping Ltd’s cargoship, Irish Pine which departed Dublin bound for Boston, USA, however all 33 crew were lost when the ship sank following a U-Boat torpedo attack in mid-November 1942.
