Are you sure about the dates Bryno? If she landed on Ellis Island 'On the first day of January 1892', she was sailing for over a year! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoaJwOkFD7A
My GOD - she must have been starving when she got there !!!!
Sorry if my dates are wrong, I have to admit, I "borrowed" that info from a tweet on Twitter this morning.
Thanks for your correction and the vidjo !!!
Brilliant video! Thanks for sharing.
He has the most amazing voice and can interpret a song beautifully.
Annie Moore with her two brothers left Queenstown (now Cobh) ON 20TH DECEMBER 1891 and arrived on Ellis Island and was the first passenger to be registered on Ellis Island If you ever come to Cork City and would like to see The Shandon Steeple and play the famous bells you will also be in the vicinity of where Annie Moore and her brothers lived in No 2 Rowlands Lane off John Redmond St. The is a plaque on the wall If you are travelling from the city centre walk up John Redmond St. Pass the main gate of the Old Norh Infirmary now a Hotel and on keep walking on the right hand side you will come accross a plaque erected last August to Mother Jones and oppossite this is Rowlands Lane and the second house (in lovely condition) is where Annie Moore lived. This is only 7 or 8 minutes walk from St Patricks Bridge. It is also a very historical part of the city with a Beautiful building looking down John Redmond St (Old butter market from which butter was famously exported to the far corners of the world) And also the Firkane Crane in which the butter barrells were made. Then we have the magestic Shandon Steeple to the right with great views from over its 4 clocks And up a little further we have the The St and St Anns Cathedral another magnificant building and there are lots of other interesting things in the area like the longest lane in Cork Mallow Lane starting in Shandon StEdited: 6:23 am, January 21, 2013
