    Great podcast!
    I just wanted to add to your Titanic section if I may. You gave a brief mention to the Cork connection, and as I’m sure you know, Cobh was Titanic’s last port of call before it finally set sail towards the US.

    Like Belfast, Cobh has given visitors more reasons to spend some time there with the new Titanic Experience. I didn’t get a chance to go there myself when I was home in April, but my brother, a teacher, took a class of students there, and was very impressed.
    It definitely has given Cobh a boost, and it’s also given people travelling with kids another great option for an educational tour.
    Best Regards,

      • Be sure to set aside an hour to walk up and see the Cathedral. It’s an amazing building.
