A very special visitor to Cobh this Saturday (6th May)

The Moon Car

The Moon Car, the original 1919 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

There will be a very special visitor in Cobh this Saturday (May 6th) for the official launch of John Jefferies’ new book “Death on the Pier”. This is the yellow Rolls Royce Silver Ghost known as the Moon Car. The book launch takes place at the Cobh Readers & Writers Festival in Cobh’s Promenade – please note the time of this launch is 5.00pm and not the time advertised in the festival brochure. The Moon Car is the exact vehicle that was used in the 1924 attack on Cobh’s Pier Head. After the attack it disappeared and was not seen again until 1981. It was meticulously and lovingly restored a number of years ago by James Black of Lisburn and is now owned by Patsy McSweeney of Ballineen, West Cork. See the Moon Car and learn about its mysterious history in John Jefferies new book at the Promenade on Saturday.
