We commemorate the 150th anniversary of the wreck of the RMS Bohemian, with the loss of 42 mostly Irish emigrants, this Saturday at the Maine Irish Heritage Center.  The event will include speakers who go over a brief history of the wreck.  We will also enjoy live Irish music from The Keenans, a local group.

Refreshments will be provided.

There is a nice article in the Portland Press Herald today on the wreck and the event.
