Michael Connaghton


Richard Coplen

Hey, Richie here. I was wondering if anyone could tell me about Mr. Michael Connaghton - a third class passenger who boarded the Titanic at Queenstown. He came from the same village as my mother - Ballymahon in Co. Longford. That's about as much as I can find out about him, but I'd love to learn more...especially his early life.

Hello Richie,

Mr. Michael Connaghton was 31-years-old at the time of the sinking. He had been visiting relatives in Ballymahon Co. Longford, and was taking the Titanic's maiden voyage back to his home in Brooklyn, New York. He died in the sinking. His body was never identified.

Hope this helps some.
