Annie Moore of Ellis Island fame was finally and properly commemorated in both Cork and New York last Friday and Saturday.
On October 10, 2008, a plaque was installed on the last house she lived in before coming to America. You can watch the reveal of the plaque and remarks made by the Lord Mayor of Cork and the U.S. General Consul in the following video. And you can see a charming rendition of what I think of as Annie's song by local children. Tim McCoy, who guided local school children in making a film about Annie last year, was also instrumental in this event.
