|Maine Irish Heritage Center, formerly St. Dominic's Church|
The Maine Irish Heritage Center will host an event this week to recognize the many Irish immigrant third class passengers who lost their lives in this maritime disaster and to acknowledge Maine's vibrant connection to Ireland and people of the Irish diaspora.
The RMS Titanic event is on Saturday, April 14, 2012 beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Maine Irish Heritage Center, 34 Gray Street, Portland.
The Maine Irish Heritage Center’s Mission is to protect, preserve and restore the historic landmark that was formerly St. Dominic’s Church, a hub of early Irish community in Maine, provide a center for Maine’s diverse communities to share their cultural experiences through education programs and community events, and house Maine’s Irish Genealogical Center and Library, preserving the story of Irish history in Maine.
