19-year-old Jeremiah Burke from Cork, Ireland, was given a holy water bottle by his mother as he boarded the Titanic. As the ship was sinking, he wrote a note which read “From Titanic, goodbye all, Burke of Glanmire, Cork” placed it into the bottle and threw it overboard. The bottle washed ashore a year later in Dunkettle and was given back to his family. The bottle and note remained in the family until 2011, when they donated it to the Titanic exhibition in the Cobh Heritage Centre.
