‪*Local review

Let me start by saying the people of Cobh are highly commended for helping out on the recovery of bodies of the Lusitania sinking, even burying some of them on the town’s Old Church Cemetery.

The memorial here stands as a respectful gesture to remember these victims. Life-size and life-like, the statues are as humanly expressive as it could be. One can feel a sense of loss as you look into these figures.

The location is fitting too as it overlooks the Cork Harbour. Spare a moment here and learn an important part of Cobh’s maritime and humanitarian history.‬

‪Pues eso, una estatua memorial del Lusitania, en homenaje a los pescadores que ayudaron en el rescate.

Como tengo que rellenar caracteres os diré que está en todo el centro del pueblo frente al puerto, no tiene pérdida.

Es una estatua, no nos vengamos arriba, pero es bonita.‬

‪Great to pay respect to the dead but it really is just a statue. Its not an attraction really. If it was in a bigger city you would walk past it but cobh has a maratime theme i suppose so when in rome......‬

‪Statue in middle of town with traffic able to go on both side so have to be careful picture taking. Commemorates the sinking of the ship as many of the dead were brought to this town (once known as Queenstown) by local fisherman. This town is very historic as this was also the last stop of Titanic before it sank.‬

‪A well maintained memorial to all of those who died in 1915 with thie sinking of the ship. It has a small noticeboard with some details on it for those who are not familiar with the story.

Well kept and litter free, the town obviously care for this place.

Not worth a trip in its own right, but if in Cobh, then very much worth a visit.‬

‪The sinking of the Lusitania on May 7th 1915 resulted in the deaths of 1,198 of the 1,959 people aboard. It was torpedoed off the Old Head of Kinsale County Cork, by the Germans during World War I.

Many of the victims were brought to Cobh and many are in the Old Church Graveyard near Cobh town. The monument, which is in Casement Square in the town centre, created by Jerome O'Connor commemorates those who died in the tragedy. It depicts two fisherman who went to the rescue of the ill fated liner. Over them is the Angel of Peace.

The event turned public opinion in many countries against Germany, contributed to the American entry into World War I and became an iconic symbol in military recruiting campaigns of why the war was being fought.‬

‪Me and Becky looked at this and although quite poignant it is just a memorial and so worth looking at if in the area but not worth a special trip‬

‪The striking statue may make people think from a distance that it is a memorial of the Titanic. However, on getting closer you realise that it is in fact for the Lusitania. It is a reminder of that tragedy. ‬

‪It’s not much of a tourist attraction, but more of a reminder of the tragedies of war. So many innocent passengers lost their lives to a u-boat attack in WWI, and to add to the tragedy, the town of Cobh witnessed and dealt with the aftermath of it all. Thoughtfully done. A very sobering memorial.‬

‪The statue commemorates the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915 by a German U boat, a few miles off the coast. It is a poignant reminder of the huge loss of life that day.‬
