Maura Ryan, Alice and Derry Bourke, Carmel Hogan, Willie Dominic Ryan and TJ Hogan. All had relatives interned here in 1921
Our tour to Spike Island and Cobh Heritage Centre.- Saturday 22nd August, saw forty six of us on board a bus bound for Spike Island and Cobh Heritage Centre. Our day in Cobh began with tea and scones in the Heritage Centre cafe before taking the ferry across Cork harbour to the island.
The law finally caught up with them
Our guide took us through the various stages of Spike’s oftime colourful history. Beginning as a monastic settlement, then used as a holding centre for convicts awaiting transportation to the colonies. In the War of Independence it was used to intern IRA detainees and better known in modern times as a prison.
Of particular interest to our group was the period of 1921 when it housed IRA detainees. Four members of our party had direct relatives imprisoned there during that troubled period. Tom O’Neill, chief guide of the island, made the records of these men available to us for viewing. Of particular interest, was an entry in an autograph book from ”Thomas Ryan” of Cronovone.
After our tour of Spike Island, we returned safely to shore to do the self guided tour of Cobh Heritage Centre. Through pictorial and visual displays, the centre plots the history of Ireland’s sorry tale of emigration from penal times, convict transportations, the coffin ships and the search for a new life in the new world of America. Cobh was the last port of call for the ill fated Titanic. The Heritage centre houses many original photos and artefacts from that doomed ocean liner.
House where Ellen Organ, otherwise known as ”Little Nellie of Holy God” lived
A great day, helped in no small way by ideal weather, full of major significant historical interest. A day, enormously enjoyed by all.
