The Famine Memorial
The hundreds of thousands of Irish people who lost their lives in the Famine have been immortalized in this haunting sculpture on Customs House Quay. The location of the piece, created by Rowan Gillespie, is particularly poignant as it is from this location that one of the very first ships carrying those escaping the famine set sail in 1846.
Beautiful, yet horrible to think of what they went through.
