Aboard the Jeanie Johnston

The Jeanie Johnston is a replica of the ships that made the difficult journey to the United States during the Irish Famine in the 19th Century. It was docked in Cobh at the weekend and Ronan (pictured below in the galley) very kindly gave myself and Justin a tour of the ship! Thank you Donogh for ringing ahead, and I owe you a pint or two next time! Enjoy the photos!
