Laurentic commemorations planned as 100th anniversary approaches


Communities in the North West have been asked to participate in a special commemorative event next week to mark the sinking of the White Star line SS Laurentic.
More than 350 people died when the Laurentic was destroyed by a mine off the coast of Donegal on January 25th 1917.
It happened just an hour before the ship had stopped off at Buncrana, due to a number of cases of illness on board.
The Education Officer with Derry City and Strabane District Council is Ronan McConnell…………
