Everything from the sinking of the Titanic and the Lusitania and the Great Famine to the transportation of the forgotten Irish who endured forced labour in Cromwellian times is inventively displayed in a variety of modern, tasteful, and artistic ways.

It includes many historic and emotive stories of those who departed, and the Exhibition is inventively situated within Cobh’s restored Victorian railway station, a building with its own historic story.
