Remains washed up on a Canadian beach belonged to shipwreck victims lost at sea while fleeing the Irish Famine, the Canadian government has confirmed.
The bones of three children washed up on a beach at Cap-des-Rosiers following a storm in 2011.
The remains of 18 others, mostly women and children, were uncovered by archaeologists on the beach in 2016.
Experts have now said the remains were from the 1847 Carricks ship from County Sligo.
Scientists said that that the location of the remains, combined with laboratory analysis, confirmed the theory that they were from the Carricks shipwreck.
