The Lights of The Mary Elmes Bridge

The Lights of The Mary Elmes Bridge

Mary Elmes was an an Irish aid worker who saved many Jewish children from being transported to concentration camps during World War II.

In 1942, the Vichy authorities made it clear that Jewish children were not legally allowed to be exempt from being sent to the concentration camps, as they had been. Elmes, with help from some colleagues, rescued dozens of children, taking them to safe houses or helping them flee the country altogether. Well aware that she was putting herself at risk, Elmes hid many children in the boot of her car and drove them to safe destinations. She aided many others by securing documents, which allowed for them to escape through the undercover network in Vichy France.

She was born in Cork in 1908 and today, a new bridge named in her honour was opened officially (backup) by the Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr John Sheehan.

The People’s Regatta in Cobh ended with a spectacular fireworks display last night! I got there early and set up just below Cobh Cathedral. I could see that Kennedy Park was packed, the pier was too but there were only a few around the Cathedral. About five minutes before the fireworks were due to start the street quickly filled with onlookers!

If you visit Malaga during Easter Week you’ll soon become aware of the many processions that happen in the city. Young and old alike throng the city waiting patiently for processions to pass. They happen in the middle of the day, they happen at night. You can be walking down a road after dinner when you’ll hear drumming or a brass band in the distance and suddenly your way is blocked for the next ten minutes.

It’s amazing to see. Be prepared to take your time and take detours if you visit around Easter. 🙂
