Just stand amongst the frail, ragged and famished bodies and let your mind imagine what personal tragedies each had to endure and the many millions that had to follow after them in the hopes of something better. Even more poignant today given that the cemetery gates of emigration have been once again pushed open in this country.

The Famine Memorial on Custom House Quay was donated to the people of Dublin by Norma Smurfit, and is in memory of all victims of the Great Famine, which happened between 1845-1849. It is a constant reminder lest we forget, of a very harsh era, when lots of Irish people died and many were forced to emigrate to survive.
