Taking a Walk in Cobh on a Sunny Winter's Day

 Take a Walk (or a Run) in Cobh

 on a Sunny Winter's Day

Cobh's Sonia O'Sullivan, the town's well-loved daughter
with the cathedral in the background. All pics taken 12/12/20
Check out my summertime walk (2020) in Cobh here.

Cobh, taken from the Titanic Memorial Garden at eastern end of town.

Looking west from Titanic Memorial Garden. The building on the right is the Port of Cork Operations centre from where the harbour traffic is observed and coordinated.

One of the old piers

Another shot from The Mall, Cuskinny.

The glass memorial wall at the Titanic Memorial Garden in The Cove, Cuskinny.
Here the 123 passengers who boarded the ill-fated liner in Cobh
are listed, survivors among them have an asterisk by their names.

Enjoying the winter sun in The Mall, Cuskinny.

Just one of quite a few similarly planted windows in the local credit union.

Looking west from the signposted spot known as The Bench.

Once the offices of the Cunard Shipping line.

St Colman's Cathedral (1879)

The Preacher's Steps or the Preaching House Steps
 took you to the first Methodist Church (1810) on the terrace above

The local garda station.

In the foreground is the Titanic Experience (in the former White Star offices);
on the hill above is The Crescent

The Georgian buildings of Westbourne Place rise above
 the town's promenade and bandstand.
