Titanic and the Irish by Jina Bacarr
Did you know the first immigrant registered at Ellis Island in 1892 was Irish?
Annie Moore was her name and there’s a statue of the fifteen-year-old girl at Ellis Island.
I decided my heroine in Titanic Rhapsody, Katie O’Reilly, would board at Queenstown because…
Well, because I’m Irish.
Like every good Irish family, we had a priest and a nun among the siblings.
