I would like to extend a special thanks to all the people for giving me permission to film and photograph and for their assistance when we needed it in the various filming locations.
The Cobh Heritage Center
A Special thank you to, Jack Walsh in the Cobh Heritage Center who kindly accommodated my filming, and a kind thank you, to all the brilliant staff there as well. We filmed while the center was open and there were visitors in the Center, so I would like to express my sincere gratitude for all the assistance.
The tour through the Cobh Heritage Center is an amazing experience.
A must visit for anyone visiting Cobh.
The whole tour takes you through years of Irish and local history, emigration. What the emigrant ships looked like inside, the sinking of the Titanic, Lusitania, World War events in photography, audio, animation, over three million people emigrated.
It was in this center sitting at the table as shown in the documentary, I began to write the song. Following the tour through the center a really strange emotion or inspiration came over me, it felt like someone was saying to me from somewhere far beyond, to write this song, telling me there was something not being said about what had happen throughout history. I know that sounds a bit strange but I can’t describe it any other way. That feeling remained very strong for days as the song unfolded out on to paper.
Thanks to: Emily and Geanette (Heritage Era) the two beautiful ladies shown near the end of the documentary talking to me in the Cobh Heritage Center. They may well be there to meet you too, when you visit.
Cobh Chamber Of Commerce / Tourist Office
A Special thank you to, John Sweeney in the Cobh Chamber of Commerce / Tourist Office who kindly accommodated my filming even thought there was work in progress on the building, and a kind thank you, to all the brilliant staff there as well.
The Titanic Experience
A Special thank you to, Catherine Murphy in the Titanic Experience who kindly accommodated my filming, and a kind thank you, to all the brilliant staff there as well. I would like to express my sincere gratitude for all the assistance and for staying late to get our last film shots.
The Titanic Experience is just an awesome trip back through history. You can stand on the same balconies as the people who travelled on the Titanic. Not alone that but you can get a replica of a boarding ticket with one of the passengers names on it. Furthermore you can sit in a life boat and experience the sinking of the Titanic. There is plenty more to experience as well.
This is a fantastic experience, well worth the tour when you are in Cobh.
Cobh Animation Team
I must also mention here, the Cobh Animation Team
You will see these ladies dressed in their “While Period Dresses“ during the documentary.
They have added a whole new concept and experience for people visiting Cobh.
Thank you ladies for taking the time to appear in the documentary.
Martin O Sullivan – The Cobh Tourist Train
A special thanks to Martin O Sullivan the tourist train driver who took us filming on a very entertaining tour of Cobh. This tour takes a whole hour and I must say I learned things about Cobh I never knew. You have to go on this tour, it takes you to very stunning views of Cobh and a visit to the Cathedral on the way. You will be a mine of information about Cobh and you will have a good laugh as well.
Special Thanks to Leslie Casey tourist train owner.
