Disaster Memorial

Our final stop in Ireland was at an Air India Disaster Memorial at Ahakista. The flight from Montreal to Delhi via London was blown up in the Irish space in 1985. There is a beautiful park created in memorial of those 329 people who died. It was suggested to us by a local so we decided to drive down. It was around 40 mins drive from Dunmanway and a very small and beautiful coastal place. People from India, especially the relatives of those who died still come here to pay their homages, it seems and the people in Ahakista put them up in their homes during their stay. What a nice gesture.1-IMG_36001-IMG_36021-IMG_36091-IMG_36301-IMG_3634
