About Kate Connolly
Miss Kate Connolly, 35, from Bank Place, Tipperary, Co Tipperary, boarded the Titanic at Queenstown as a third class passenger (ticket number 330972, £7 12s 7d). Her destination was Dobbs Ferry, New York.
Her mother (also named Catherine) was a shopkeeper. Miss Connolly had a sister Margaret who was a music teacher and two brothers: Edward, worked as a knife sharpener and Richard who was a porter. All of them lived in Ireland at this time.
Kate Connolly lost her life in the disaster. Her body if recovered, was never identified.
Kate's family received £40 from a Relief Committee in England. The American Red Cross offered a sum equivalent to the price of Katie's ticket to her cousin living in America who paid it, who agreed that this money also should be sent to her relatives in Ireland.
