Titanic casualties from Ireland

by ggsfmcl

My Mother had a relative that was on the Titanic, and I would like to know his name and where he came from. He was Irish, and her mother's maiden name was Jelly. Where could I find a list of Irish emigrants who were on steerage class? Thank you

http://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-third-class-passengers/

and

http://www.titanic-passengers.com/

have full passenger lists, with other biographical details.

I am afraid there is no 'Jelly' listed, in steerage (3rd class) or elsewhere.

http://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/theme/Irish+steerage+passengers/ has links to various newpaper artcles and evidence about Irish steerage passengers.

Jelly is not a common Irish name. Have you tried variations of this? I know the names Helly and Jolly/Jollie. Just a thought.

Travel Tips for Cobh

Coincidence ?

by sourbugger

Cobh in many people's minds is most strongly associated with the departure of the 'Titanic' ship in 1912.

I thought that I knew a good deal about the subject, but I was intrigued to find out about the novel 'Titan' written in 1898 when I was in the Titanic bar.

The novel seems to be remarkably close to the real facts about the Titanic, although it was a work of fiction written some 14 years previous.

Some people see this as a case of 'parapsyschology' (Yes, I know my spellchecker is on the blink). I'm not so sure.

Here are some of the salient facts for you :

number of persons aboard: titan - 3,000, titanic - 2,207

number of lifeboats: titan - 24, titanic - 20

speed at impact with iceberg: titan - 25 knots, titanic - 23 knots

displacement tonnage of the liner: titan - 75,000, titanic - 66,000

length of the liner - titan - 800 ft., titanic - 882.5 ft.

number of propellers - titan - 3, titanic - 3

There appears to be similarities in the following areas : the name of the ship; myth of unsinkability; collision with iceberg; sinking in month of april; displacement tonnage; lengthy of ship; speed of ship at impact; number of propellers; number of life boats; enormous loss of life.

Make of that what you will.

Titanic and the Lusitania

by tvor

in 1912, the Titanic left Cobh as it's last port of call before heading across the Atlantic on it's first and only tragic voyage. There is a heritage walking tour in Cobh called the Titanic Trail that might be of interest to visitors. I didn't take it as i didn't have the time.

The Lusitania was a ship that was torpedoed and sunk 30 miles or so off the coast of Ireland near Cork in 1915. Many of the dead are buried in the Old Cemetery here.

Cove Queenstown Cobh

by chrissyalex

This town was originally named Cove. When Queen Victoria first visited Ireland, she arrived in Cove and it was renamed Queenstown after her. In 1920, the name was reverted back to Cobh(pronounced "Cove' ),this time using the Gaelic spelling. "Bh" is pronounced as "v" in Gaelic.

In a Railway Station

by grandmaR

The bus tour made a special stop at Cobh (which is pronounced Cove) so that we could go through The Queenstown Experience. Cobh, under the English was called Queenstown, and many Irish immigrants left for the New World from here.

The Queenstown Experience, along with gifts shop and a kind of food court is housed in an old railway station which is interesting in itself. The food court is in the railway station concourse. I expected for them to have a list of the people who emigrated from Queenstown, but they did not. It seemed to be just a place to register to get information, for which one would pay. Since as far as I know, I have no Irish ancestors, I didn't register.

My grandson's mother had one Irish grandfather, which would make him about 1/8th Irish, and he didn't register either. We found more information at Ellis Island than we did here.

Forget Guinness

by tvor

Everyone thinks of the black creamy Guinness when they think of Irish pubs. You'd be better off not asking for it down in the south, in and around Cork and Cobh. This is Murphy's Stout country and Cork is where Murphy's was created and is still brewed. It too is dark and full bodied and just as good as Guinness.
