So many people left Ireland during the famine years of the mid-1800’s. This statue reminds us that people of all ages travelled with hopes of finding a better life.

The Annie Moore statue on the quay at Cobh is both a lovely sculpture and a poignant representation of history. History tells us that the 17-year-old Annie and her even younger brothers bravely sailed to America from Cobh (then Queenstown), hoping to be reunited with their parents after being separated from them for more than three years. And history tells us that Annie became the first foreigner to be processed through the then-brand new immigration center at Ellis Island in New York harbor on January 1, 1892. The statue is definitely worth a photo stop on any visit of Cobh.

This life-size sculpture of Annie Moore and her brothers has a prominent place next to the water. Worth visiting.

When in Cobh, you must come and learn about Annie. She is an important part of Cobh's story. It won't take you long and it's free :)

There’s a timely and timeless message about Annie’s statue that just can’t be ignored. Her story will forever be relatable to anyone who has families, relatives and friends who had brave immigrating to another country. So lovely and touching that Cobh recognized not just the historic significance of her departure but also the human element of longing and separation. A must-see in my book!

Nice statue of Annie and her two children who arrived at Ellis Island in New York on the day it opened The statue is very close to the Heritage Centre and worth a quick look and to listen to very clear recording in any of 6 languages - English, French, Irish, Italian, Spanish or German.

This lovely statue overlooks the harbour. The three sculptures offset by brightly coloured fresh flowers are beautifully designed and seemingly made with love. The two boys and mother all seem wrapped up in their own worlds. The statue reflects a bygone era and it belongs exactly where it is which is near where the front of where the doomed Titanic would have been docked.

One can't help but be moved by the image of this memorial to Annie Moore and her family and thinking of the thousands of Iris Emigrants who departed these quays for countries all over the world, most would never see their homeland again, many would not even survive the voyage. It's a fitting memorial and located in a very beautiful area of the quays which is beautifully decorated with colourful flowers etc.
