Cobh prepares for Titanic commenerations

The town of Cobh is looking forward to 12 months of increased tourism.

New Years Day, marked the Beginning of Titanic 100, a year of events,  centred around April when it will be a century exactly since the ill fated ship left off Roche’s Point and headed to the Atlantic.

Yesterday there was a gun salute and 123 flares were launched from spike island to remember the people who boarded the titanic from queenstown on the 11th of April 1912.

The Mayor of Cobh Jim Quinlan hopes tourism will be boosted in 2012
