One of the men connected with the alleged pilfering at Bonmahon mines is also stated to have been on the Titanic.

[Theft cases at Bonmahon copper mines occupied newspaper coverage in July 1912.
While Frank Dwan was not named in connection with any of the pilfering, he was the only passenger from Bonmahon, Ireland, aboard the Titanic.
Had Dwan survived, and had he been utterly unconnected with the incidents at the mines, then he would clearly have had an open-and-shut libel case to pursue.
The question therefore is whether the story's imputation is accurate. By April 19, no Irish newspaper could assume that a Titanic steerage passenger was safely dead, and therefore beyond resort to the courts for restoration of his good name.]
