Jessica’s parent are staying with us right now, and besides playing with Daniel, we’ve also had time to explore our area some more. One of the places we visited was Cobh (pronounced “Cove”) which used to be called Queenstown, and was the last stop of the Titanic before it sank. It was also a major port for emigrants during the potato famine. In those days, so many people wanted to leave that they started using boats that were not really seaworthy, which earned themselves the title of “coffin ships”. Cobh lost a lot of it’s importance when airlines started becoming affordable, but we did see a nice cruise ship in the harbor. It’s a beautiful town, and we had some great fish and chips while we were there.
