In an event to mark the centenary of the sinking of the world’s most famous ship, Enspire held a family fun event at Slieve Gullion courtyard on Sunday 15th April 2012. Starting at 2pm, the event commemorated the sinking with family art, games and activities, finishing off with a poignant reminder of the people lost on that fateful night.

“We want to thank everyone who came to mark the centenary of the ship’s sinking,” said Enspire’s Sharon Carroll. “We were amazed by the Titanic models people made and several people were in tears as we sang ‘nearer my god to thee’ in memory of the lives lost.”

Everybody got a replica Titanic ticket and, as we all know, survival from the sinking was determined by their ticket. There were poignant moments as famies realised how they would have been separated. Always respectful of those lost, the event was an educational, enjoyable and exciting family day out.

Enspire’s next event is marking ‘National dawn chorus day’ on 6th May. Their website is www.enspirelearn.com and you can find them on Facebook.com/enspirelearn and follow their nature, heritage and educational feed on twitter @enspirelearn
