This statue of Anna "Annie" Moore (aged 17) and her two brothers Anthony (aged 15) and Philip (aged 12), commemorates their embarkation from Cobh on 20 December 1891 and as a tribute to all who emigrated from Ireland. Annie Moore was the first ever imigrant to pass through the newly opened Ellis Island Immigration facility in New York Harbour. Annie is honored by two statues, this one commemorating her port of departure from Cobh and the other at Ellis Island, her port of arrival in America. Between 1820 and 1920, more than 4 million people left Ireland bound for the Port of New York and a new life in America.
I believe she was the first person to be registered at Ellis island as a immigrant.
