Cork-a Scrapbook through Time (a photographic comparison) by Eabha Landers was launched in Cork City Library by Lord Mayor Cllr. Terry Shannon on 29th November 2011. Eabha (12 years old) is a 1st year student in Colaiste an Phiarsiagh in Glanmire.

This pictorial book is a project which involved acquiring old photographs from accredited museums and pictorial collections and matching the photographs to those Eabha took herself from the same position today. The book is available from most bookshops across Cork and would make an ideal Christmas present especially for the Irish diaspora spread across the World.

Tim McCoy, Eabha's grandfather is a well known historian, photographer and filmmaker. He has many links with genealogists and historians throughout the world and particularly the USA. He researched and verified the cork birth place of Annie Moore, the first Irish immigrant to be processed through Ellis Island.
