The 1,517 lives lost in the Titanic tragedy will be commemorated in a hand–crafted funeral pall which will be dedicated in St. Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, a century after the disaster. The 12ft X 8ft pall has been made by Helen O’Hare and Wilma Kirkpatrick, textile artists at the University of Ulster. After commemorative events this year, it will remain in the cathedral to be used at funerals when required.
For images of the pall and more information, please visit the Church of Ireland’s Web site.
