We had done the tourist thing, and now we wanted to see beyond. So with Sean at the wheel, we set out with just an idea of where we wanted to go for a couple of days along the southeast coast of Ireland. In the car, I noted where we went and what we did. Then after our outings, when I had time, I made a little map of the highlights.

Cobh is full of history, and tragedy. It was the last place the Titanic stopped before it’s infamous voyage. It is also where the sinking of the Lustania took place on May 7, 1915. This statue is in honor of those who worked to rescue people and bury the dead.
