Did you grow up in Cobh in the 1950s or 1960s? Cobh Museum is looking for photographs taken on the streets of Cobh. We have been getting some lovely photographs which were taken by Mr. Hannifin from Sandymount who often photographed people in Top of the Hill and also at Lane’s Corner.

We are inviting members of the public to submit a copy of their photographs by e.mail (cobhmuseum1@gmail.com) or to call to have the original photo scanned by Cobh Museum staff. Please supply names and date if available. Make sure that your family are part of this record for the future.

Cobh Museum’s office (side gate entrance) is open to accept photographs Monday to Thursday from 10.30 to 4.30 p.m. during the winter. Happy searching!

The cheque of €500 was presented to St. Vincent de Paul on Tuesday evening at the Community Centre. It was part of the proceeds from the Centre’s ‘Christmas Variety Concert’. John Coleman, Chairman of the Cobh Community Centre, thanked all the groups that performed at the concert last December, including nearby colleges St. Mary’s National School, Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh and Scoil Iosaef. Members of the Fundraising Committee – Manager, Gwen O’Halloran, Majella Smith, Martin O’Leary and Catherine Jefferson – also expressed their appreciation for the spirited and uplifting performances that were given last December by the Children’s Theatre, the Cope Foundation Day Unit, Pop & Rock and the Carrigtwohill Gospel Choir. Thanking the Cobh Community Centre, Liz O’Driscoll and Aine O’Regan from St. Vincent de Paul said, “Our charity receives much focus around Christmas time, which is a great thing, but our work is ongoing, year-round. Therefore, donations at this time of year are especially important to us.”

The Chairman used the presentation of the cheque to St. Vincent de Paul to announce ambitious plans to increase the usage of the Centre’s many and varied facilities. John noted, “Cobh Community Centre has great potential for hosting a variety of both community and commercial activities as well as training sessions. We offer convenience plus first-class facilities. That’s a package that’s hard to top! We are also constantly expanding and upgrading our classes and events. So, there is something here for everyone in the Cobh community…the Centre literally does what it says on the tin!”
