Cobh, as seen from Spike Island

This weekend’s photowalk started off in Cobh with a short boat trip over to Spike Island. My enduring memories of Cobh from taking the B&I ferry over to Ireland on holidays has always been this view of the towering cathedral and colourful seafront. In fact, I dare say this is the best way to experience Cobh.

It must have also been depressing for the prisoners of Spike Island to look across at the colourful town, in such contrast to the fate that awaited them in Barbados, Australia or Tasmania.
