My restored and colourised photo featuring a Nazi flag flying high on West Beach in Cobh, County Cork during the Treaty Port handover of Spike Island on the 11th of July 1938 following the establishment of the Irish Free State.

Norddeutscher Lloyd Bremen (North German Lloyd) ran a route from Bremen to New York via Queenstown (Cobh) in the 1930s.The flag on the right is for the Limerick Steamship Company “LSSCo”.

    Excellent research project.
    I hope it pays more dividends than this poor sap who left college with a £56K student loan bill and wonders why no employers are interested in her thoughts on the gender distortion of austerity.

    I can help wondering if there’s also a large number of Irish students pursuing meaningless arts degrees who will find themselves in the same boat in the post-Covid-19 job wastelands.
    Still, you’ll be able to have a lovely intelligent chat with them over the counter at Abrakebabra.
    Marvellous.

      Fintant, just so you know, history degrees are arts degrees. It sounds a bit like you’re the sad sap who can’t find any joy in life, deciding to have a go at people with arts degrees for absolutely no reason that’s related to the actual post. Good job Fintan. Good job. You’re the best. I hope you have a very meaningful career garnered from your accounting or whatever degree. I’m sure you’re the absolute life and soul of every party.

    Nazis fuming to be associated with such extremists. Where’s Eoghan Harris to explain the IRA were to blame?
