 This is Cathy Dunne in the convent garden on her wedding day, August 23 1963. 

She writes today of her Titanic connection.

Mary I was interested in your Titanic connection. My mother’s uncle, my great uncle died in the Titanic disaster. His name was O’Connor from near Armagh. .My mother spoke of him quite a lot and how difficult it was to get news. The local headmaster used to give my great grandmother his copy of the newspaper, which was a couple of days old. Unfortunately she never survived the shock of losing her little brother.
