The town of Cobh

Standard

Cobh (pronounced cove) is very rich in history. It’s the last stop before the Titanic went down. It’s where the Lusitania was sunk by the Germans during WWI   The first Irish immigrant, a 15 year old girl named Annie Moore, with her 2 younger brothers took off for America. And of course , Poppy and his brother Dan headed for New York from here. We were taken to Cobh by Kitty, Dennis and his lovely wife, Ursula. You can see the spot behind Brian where the launch took Poppy to the Dreamliner
