What Does The Irish Memorial Mean to You? The Irish Memorial was created to commemorate and to educate about the tragedy of Ireland’s Great Hunger. Over the years, we could not be more excited by the way the Memorial has grown...
The National Memorial to An Gorta Mór is located in Philadelphia Pa, USA. This memorial commemorates the struggle and pain of those Irish who fled their homeland in the face of a hunger of catastrophic proportions. It celebrates their courage that forged an enduring link between Ireland and America.
Check out what #TheIrishMemorial & #GhostShip (at Race Street Pier now!) have in common. Visit this great art installation and also visit (the link) and just try not to be moved as you listen to a letter from 1845 during The Great Hunger.
