It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Glenna Goodacre, the renowned sculptor of our very own Irish Memorial. Read more about this extraordinary artist.
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.
Calling all friends of the Irish Memorial we are having a site clean-up on Saturday March 7th at 8:30am, at our location on 2nd & Front Street. We're looking for all the help we can get! We have all the supplies. We hope to see you there. Your Irish Memorial thanks you in advance https://t.co/jAD1d3PrJt
