Memorial for Loss of Dun Laoghaire Lifeboat Crew on Christmas Eve 1895

December 25, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I'm taking a break from my 2017 look back to show the best of my shots from yesterday at the annual memorial for the loss of the crew of the Dun Laoghaire Lifeboat on Christmas Eve 1895. They were attempting to rescue the crew of the SS Palme – a Finnish/Russian sailing ship travelling from Liverpool to South America to import hardwood. Check the Dun Laoghaire  Lifeboat's home page for a detailed account of how fifteen lifeboatmen were lost when their boat overturned. In a terrible irony, the nineteen people on the SS Palme were later saved.


The memorial was held by the current volunteer crew, the Irish Coastguard and the Civil Defence, at noon on the East Pier in Dun Laoghaire. The gathering was addressed by Fergal Keane of RTE who narrated the story of the disaster. The crew of Rescue 116, lost off Co. Mayo earlier this year were also remembered with a fly past by a Coastguard helicopter. Rector Asa Bjork Olafsdottir O’Hanlon and Fr. Paddy Dundon conducted an ecumenical service. There was a big attendance of RNLI and Irish Coastguard members, and local people, as well as  Minister of State, Mary Mitchell O'Connor TD and Councillors Cormac Devlin and Barry Ward.

There's also a few shots at the end of this post of the memorial stone with the men's names on Queens Road opposite the RNLI station.
