A Titanic Memorial to John Flynn: Clonbur, Co Galway


Titanic Memorial in Clonbur

Titanic Memorial in Clonbur

While many Irish were leaving the country for a better life elsewhere, John Flynn had already established himself in Pennsylvania. He had returned to Clonbur to visit his sister, but an urgent letter from his wife called him back earlier than expected. The Boat Agent who sold him a ticket for the Titanic was located where The Fairhill House Hotel in Clonbur now stands.

The citizens of Clonbur commemorate Mr Flynn with a plaque on the edge of town.
