#FethardLifeboat- For over than three decades the Trustees of the Lifeboat Memorial in The Burrow, Rosslare, Co. Wexford have laid a wreath in memory of those who lost their lives at sea.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the "Mexico" disaster in which the monument commemorates. During this heroic rescue nine lifeboat men from the Fethard lifeboat and one crew member from the Norwegian schooner "Mexico" lost their lives.

To commemorate the centenary of the disaster, the trustees are laying a wreath at The Burrow on Sunday 23 February at 3pm.

As part of the event, a photographic and memorabilia exhibition in association with the Rosslare Maritime Enthusiasts, will highlight the rescue of the "Mexico" and that of a 'fort' settlement, which disappeared into the sea in 1920's. The exhibition will be held in Scoil Mhuire National School, Rosslare on the weekend of Saturday 22 February, (12noon and 7pm) and Sunday 23 February (10am and 5pm).

All are welcome. For further information contact Billy Doyle on 086 6386002, Des Peare on 087 6827497 or John Boyce on 086 393425 email: [email protected]
