"The Cobb, the last city of the Titanic", ©2006 Elroy Christenson
Cobb is an island community with a reputation as the last port that many Irish emigrants visited. From here they could take a ship to the United States. They claim that up to 80% of the emigrants went through this port during the potato famine. It also was the last port visited by the Titanic on its ill-faited inaugural voyage.
