"Thousands of Australians travel to Ireland every year in search of ancestors and family connections. They’re often the descendants of more than 40-000 convicts who were transported to Australia from the small coastal town of Cobh in Southern Cork in the early 1800’s. Cobh was also a key centre of IRA activity during the war of independence and the last port of Call of the Titanic. Cobh historian and author Kieran McCarthy knows all the stories about the historic town."
(Text from Travel Writers Radio)
Putting Cobh on the Map Kieran talks not only about the war of independence, he also brings up Spike Island, Cobh Heritage Centre, Emigration, Famine and Cobh's link with maritime disaster's such as the Titanic & Lusitania.
