St Colman's Cathedral and the town of Cobh, Cork Harbour, County Cork
The town of Cobh (Queenstown for some decades until 1922), is located on Great Island the largest of the three main islands in the vast Cork Harbour. For many years it was a calling point for the Transatlantic liners and on the quayside there is a memorial to the victims of the Lusitania, sunk by a German submarine in 1915. Another unhappy association is with the Titanic; Queenstown was her last port of call on her fateful maiden voyage.
