So sad to think of the passengers of the Lusitania...to be torpedoed while on a pleasure cruise... Thank goodness that happens more rarely now. The ship went down just 10 miles off the coast between Cobh and Kinsale. Behind the memorial is the visitor's center.

I would not have associated Cobh with this event but thanks to the Monument and Info board...that fateful day is remembered.
