Interesting monument to the Lusitania sinking. The back of the monument has a circular bench where you can sit and relax with a coffee or tea from the shop next to it.

Set in the centre of the town square facing the Quay this is a very apt setting to commemorate the tragic loss of life in WW1. Tells the story - very touching. A lovely monument and worthy of a few minutes study.

This is a beautiful memorial in the centre of Cobh. A great way to understand a little of the link between Cobh and the Lusitania.

Cobh isn’t just about the Titanic Shipwreck but also the Lusitania. Situated in the middle of the town square, people gather to remember, listen to local music, have coffee/other and catch up on their day.
