Visit To Blarney Cork 2007 - a Memory of Blarney.

My ancestors came from Cork to England. Whether this means that they sailed from Cork Harbour during the 1850's, or whether they lived in Cork, I am not sure, however my husband and I had an enjoyable few days there this year. The Cohb Harbour Heritage Centre is well worth a visit, especially if you, like me, had family who made the journey in the awful conditions in the ships, which the centre portrays really well. Also of course, Cohb was the last port of call for the Titanic, which also gets a mention there.  Patrick Street is a bustling shopping centre, with of course the bridge over the river Lee.
