President Michael D.Higgins will come to Cobh this Wednesday April 11th to oversee the National Tribute and pay respects to the 123 passengers who left Cobh on the ill-fated Titanic exactly 100 years ago. This National Tribute will see a Naval Fleet review and a Fly Over from the Irish Air Corps. All are welcome to this unique occasion that only comes around once every 100 years.


AN IRISH CONNECTION’ premieres in Cobh, Titanic’s last port of call from the 11th -14th April 2012 to coincide with the Titanic’s Centenary events in Cobh – Titanic 100 Cobh 2102.

The evening outdoor Gala Concerts tell the story of emigration and the Titanic’s connection with Ireland through music, narration, dance and song. This wonderful interpretation of remembrance and hope will stir the emotions and offer a truly poignant reminder of Ireland’s positive connection with the rest of the world. Hosted on the historical site where the last passengers boarded the Titanic, this will be a spectacle that will long stay in your memory.

Acclaimed composer and author, Brendan Graham will write a connecting narrative of the songs performed, which will tell the story of the Titanic and its particular association with Cobh.

The concerts will take place in Cobh , County Cork on the Promenade by the waterfront. There will be an exclusive ticketed seated area for premium viewing for which tickets will be on sale from Friday 2nd March. Free viewing standing areas in the street adjacent to the promenade are also available. The concert will run nightly from 7pm -9pm beginning on the 11th of April, the day the Titanic sailed from Cobh and finishing on the 14th of April, the night when Titanic struck the iceberg.

Tickets will also be available on Monday March 6th at the Irish Examiner Office on Lapps Quay Cork. Tickets are priced at €20.00 each excluding on-line booking fee.

Subject to availability some limited viewing standing areas in the street adjacent to the promenade may be used by the public at no charge.


2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s maiden voyage. Cobh, then Queenstown, was the Titanic’s last port of call. 123 passengers boarded the magnificent vessel in a bid to journey to the new world. For the last century the world has been intrigued with the story of the largest passenger liner at the
time and the vessel that many thought was unsinkable.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s journey and to remember and pay tribute to all who have been involved with her, Cobh in County Cork, Ireland, will play host to a memorable series of events. This event series – Titanic 100 Cobh 2012, will include many and varied events and will appeal to a wide audience. We look forward to seeing you in Cobh to share the experience with us.
