Two of my happy travelling companions,Terry and Marianne, pictured outside the Cobh (pronounced Cove) Heritage centre in Cork. It was from here that the vast majority of our emigrants began their journey to the USA. This place is well worth a visit, especially if your own ancestors left from here, and the chances are that they did.
Terry and Marianne pictured with their two husbands, Al on the left, and Ed, behind Marianne, with the bronze figures of Annie Moore and her two young brothers, the first people to register at Ellis Island in 1892.
Another lovely picture of the party which i took at Ladies View, with the Lakes of Killarney in the background.
Just a few more pictures to whet your appetite, if you are planning a trip to Ireland. I was born and reared in the West of Ireland, so for me, that is my true homeland and where i am most at home when on tour. I am not a city person, i love the countryside, the wonderful fresh Atlantic air on the western seaboard, the mountains, valleys, and boglands of the west, the stone walls. There is so much to see, Connemara, The Burren of County Clare and the Cliffs of Moher, Dingle and the Dingle Peninsula, the Ring of Kerry, the Gap of Dunloe, Killarney, Blarney, Kinsale, Cobh.....need i go on.
Let me show it to you. How long will you need? Anything from 8-10 days, but if your time is limited i am sure that we can work something out for you.
Drop me a line.......now is the time to start planning before the rush begins.
