On Saturday 22 September, North Dublin Befriending Society headed to Cobh, courtesy of Irish Rail who provided us with rail travel to that lovely town. The NDBS crew went for a lovely meal in Jacob’s restaurant.

Suitably fed, we headed to The Titanic Museum, where we received a guided tour, complete with film show, interactive activities and fascinating models of the doomed ship.

We walked up the hill to the Cathedral and sat for a while inside, taking in its peaceful atmosphere. Outside, there were fabulous views of the bay, including the notorious Spike Island.

We saw a blues band play a free show on the bandstand. The weather was very warm and sunny for a day in late September, so sitting on the grass listening to the music of the delta bluesmen (played by some Dublin jackeens) was a lovely way to end our trip.

We arrived back in Dublin at 20.45, tired but happy.
