Also at this time we’ll participate in an American Wake. Much like a traditional wake, the “American Wake” is considered a wake for the living: a chance for the relatives and friends of Irish emigrants to pay their respects to the travelers. It started in Ireland, which was the first place in the world where adult children were forced by economic and political circumstances to leave their parents and relatives, which for the vast majority, would not only be the last time that they would not only see each other, but in many a case might be the last time that they might even hear of each other due to the vagaries of ocean travel and the uncertainty of life in a new land with little reliable communications, especially for the poverty stricken and often illiterate immigrants from Ireland. We will head down to the Titanic Memorial or appropriate location for an moment of silence at 11:40pm.

Overnight: Cobh / Cork
