Come with me, darling. Let's go.
What are we doing, mommy?"
—Irish Little Boy and Irish Mother
When the Titanic sank, they were waiting for the third class main gate which was being locked, her little son asked her what do we were doing, she replied that after the crew finish to loaded the first class passengers into the lifeboats, it was their turn and told her children to stay calm.
It seems that the three of them managed to get onto the boat deck, but all the boats had been launched. Desperate, she brought her children back to their stateroom and put them to sleep while she telling the fairy tale "Tale of Tír Na Nóg". The three of them died in their stateroom.
- Even though she is a recurring character, she and her children have never met Rose in person, thus keeping them from appearing during Rose's dream scene.
- It seems that she was based on Margaret Rice, an Irish widow who traveled with her five young sons on the Titanic and all died. Margaret's last appearance was when she despaired that all the lifeboats were gone, and brought her five children to the benches on the boat deck / A deck as the water rushing towards them.
