I was in Cobh on Friday and so was able to complete the information on Annie Moore.
Having read the various plaques and information board, my thoughts include:
- Was she born in 1874 as the Cork plaque states or 1877 as the Cobh plaque contends;
- If I had to guess, I would have thought it would have taken longer than 12 days to get from Cobh to New York but I obviously would have been wrong
- Looking coldly at it, she was the first person off the boat in the queue for processing so a century later, we better commemorate her; a bit odd.
