Since the end of 2016, crana college students have been working on certain Laurentic projects during their classes to celebrate its 100th anniversary for 2017.
The classes were divided up into groups to work on a project of their own, some of these projects included a map which indicated the places that the Laurentic ship traveled.
The next day, Saturday the 28th, Crana College students laid wreaths at Fahan and Cockhill for the Laurentic Centenary Service in remembrance for the passengers.
Then finally, on Sunday, the students got a chance to aboard the Samuel Beckett, an Irish Navy ship which sailed out to the wreckage site of the SS Laurentic, where wreaths were placed as remembrance. All the effort done to remember those lost and discover more about them, as well as finding the Laurentic’s final passengers relatives was clearly worth the work-filled months and was a once in a lifetime experience!
