Ireland: Day 5

Cobh Cathedral and Cobh Heritage Centre

On Day 5 we visited Cobh, where Nanny and Grandpa emigrated from Ireland to America in 1928 and 1929, respectively.

We visited the Cobh Heritage Centre and learned about the many types of emigration from Ireland – from indentured servitude to fleeing from famine – and we also learned about major maritime events associated with Cobh, notably the sinking of the Lusitania and RMS Titanic.

After Cobh we returned to the Imperial Hotel to rest, before another family party with the O’Sullivan branch of the family in Bishopstown.
