  I  wonder  if  Mairead  knows  about   the   violin  that  was  up  for  auction  from the  Titanic  wreck .  it  was  reportedly  used  by  the concert  master  aboard  ship  the  very  night  the great  ship went  down .   The  relic  reportedly  fetched   900,000  British  pounds  which  translates  into  about  1.5   million  US  dollars.    Shocked Shocked Shocked

   She has probably heard the news of the sale.  I wonder if she would have bid on it?

After being under water for over 100 years I wonder if its even playable. I realy doubt it. Also the instruments the Titanic band played were probably not the best. Can you believe it after the sinking White Star sent a bill to the family of the bandmaster for lost uniforms.
