Profile

The village is known as “Ireland’s Titanic Village”, due to the huge loss of life that occurred from the village in the 1912 maritime catastrophe. As was typical of the times, emigration featured strongly in North Mayo, and fourteen people from the Addergoole Parish boarded the Titanic at Cobh in County Cork in search of a new life. In 2001, the villagers of Lahardane wanted to ensure that these people and their hopes and dreams were not forgotten, and so the The Addergoole Titanic Society was formed to commemorate the sad tale of the ‘Addergoole Fourteen and commemorated a number of statues to mark the event.
