Meetings & Events

MONDAY 10th Sept 2018


A talk by Mark Chirnside author, historian, consultant


(Note car parking is available in the Belfast Met ubnderground car park on Queen's Road or in the surface car parks at the SEE ARENA or beside the Premier Inn)

A talk about the White Star Line's Oceanic, often called the 'Ship of the Century', launched by Harland & Wolff in 1899.  Lavishly outfitted, she developed a reputation for popularity and reliability, running on the express route to New York for fifteen years.  In 1914, she served very briefly as an armed merchant cruiser before running aground and becoming a total loss.

We are delighted once again to host, with our partner PRONI, Mark Chirnside within our annual programme of events - we hope Mark will also be available after the event to sign his latest book on the Oceanic !


Visitors are welcome to any of our events which are free unless otherwise stated - if you wish to join our meeting as a guest, perhaps if you are considering joining our Society, you are most welcome - you can just turn up at the door or if you want why not send us an email letting us know your name and how you heard about our meeting and its content, or alternatively use the feedback form on our contact us page.

All Society meetings are normally (unless otherwise stated in the forward programme) held in Christ Church, The Royal Belfast Academical Institution, College Square East, Belfast and will commence at 7:30 pm on the 2nd Monday of each month, unless otherwise stated. Ample car parking is available at Christchurch to the rear of the main school - there is disabled access.
