A message in a holy water bottle which was thrown overboard by a Titanic victim while the ship sank has been donated to a heritage center in Cork by his family, BBC reported.
As the Titanic sank in the early hours of April 15, 1912, Jeremiah Burke, 19, from Glanmire in Cork threw the bottle containing his message into the sea.
The bottle was washed ashore a year later in Dunkettle, only a few miles from his family home.
The note, which read "From Titanic, goodbye all, Burke of Glanmire, Cork" has remained in the Burke family for nearly a century.
