The Titantic was built on behalf of the White Star Line in a series of three sister ships - known as the 'Olympic Class' ships. The Titantic and another sank.

Name the two other Olympic Class liners. Name the one that sank and under what circumstances.

In Irish, what are the three shameless diseases? Trí ghalar gan náire? The three solaces of the old man? Trí shólás an tseanduine? And in early Irish, the three fewnesses that are better than plenty? Trí huathaid ar ferr sochaide?

Grá tochas agus tart.
