We visit Cobh Heritage Centre – located in the lovely port town of Cobh (formerly Queenstown) in County Cork.
Cobh was the point of departure for so many of our shared Irish ancestors. They left this point in Ireland for a new life in so many locations around the world. When we were recording a podcast episode and feature, we chatted with Jack Walsh – the manager of the centre – behind the scenes. He told us of his own background and his experience and affinity with emigrants and places of emigration in Ireland:
- You can hear more from Jack, Carina and all about the Cobh Heritage centre in a special podcast episode here.

Slán for now, Mike & Carina.
