Planned Titanic replica can only be good news for Belfast

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 11/02/2016

The Titanic is the legend that keeps on giving. More than 100 years after the original sank in the Atlantic on its maiden voyage, images of a replica vessel planned to take to the sea in 2018 have been released.

Already the subject of two major films and worldwide centenary commemorations, it seems that a global audience has an insatiable interest in anything that is connected with the ill-fated liner.

It was a ship, in the minds of the public, like no other, and the replica, if it does set sail, will attract a waiting list of passengers. It will also mean more positive publicity for Belfast, the city where the original was built.
