Annie Moore: First in Line for America
Cork girl Annie Moore emigrated to the USA from Queenstown in December 1891. Sculptures of her now stand outside the Cobh Heritage Centre in County Cork and in the Ellis Island Museum in New York, because she was the first emigrant of any nationality to pass through the new immigrant station at Ellis Island on 1 January 1892. After this auspicious start, Annie and her brothers were reunited with their parents, who were already settled in New York, in their new home -- a humble apartment -- in 32 Monroe Street in the Lower East Side. The rest of the story is fictional.
