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!

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.

Knowing the bit of the history of Ireland which I do this statue has more meaning to me than most statues in Ireland. With all the talk of imigrants coming to ireland these days its important to remember our own history. We should open our doors to people who wish to come here from anywhere in the world on condition that they contribute to society. When we went to New York its generally known we (the Irish) built the city. No handouts were given we worked for everything we had. The statue is very sombering. Its also a good reminder to all the irish snowflakes out there that you need to work for what you get.

We had an hour to kill to visit the Titanic experience so walked this direction and stumbled upon this statue. Nice reminder of times past with a plaque with some history. Nice touch that the same statue is on Ellis Island also.

The Annie Moore statute really, for me at least was very poignant ... the thought of the tens of thousands of Irish who felt the only hope was in far off shores... it saddens me to think of the despair in making the decision... I am aware the opportunities in Ireland at the time forced many to leave their homes and families... if you get the opportunity to visit Cobh and go down to the the wharf near the rail museum and you will see this lovely reminder of the Diaspora which was and is part of the Irish story...

This is a great statue of a young woman who left Cobh for New York is worth seeing as you visit attractions around cork like the Titanic Experience or the other stories outlining the immigrants and their struggles to better their lives and sail to other ports of the world
This sculptor also created the Molly Malone statue in Dublin

It's a statue. A nice statue. But a statue nonetheless. Not sure what else to say.

But TripAdvisor asked me to review it!

Although it’s only a statue it really sets the scene on the stroll from our cruise ship to the centre of town.

It’s a statue of the first person to pass through Ellis Island in NY. Certainly not worth going out of your way to see, but if you pass by, take a quick look.

This is a brief stop for photos of this statue of Annie Moore and her brothers. Pause and think how many people went through Ellis Island to become Americans. Cobh is a beautiful city made up of colorful buildings.
