It was some thirteen months after the sinking of the Titanic and the loss of 1,514 lives that a small glass bottle washed up on the shores at Dunkettle in the mouth of Cork harbour.

Next weekend marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

In today’s Donegal Democrat and Donegal People’s Press, Paddy Walsh talks to Therese McMonagle, a Donegal school principal who relates a remarkable but poignant story of how fate sent her great grand-uncle and his cousin to their doom and how a glass bottle washed up on the shoreline near their home, bringing home the most heart-rending of messages.
