The Famine Memorial, Dublin

The Famine Memorial, crafted and designed by Rowan Gillespie, and presented to the City of Dublin in 1997, commemorates the Great Famine of the mid 19th century. No event in history has had a greater effect on Ireland than that of the Great Irish Famine which lasted from 1845 until 1849. During that time more than one million men, women and children died and a further one and a half million emigrated.

The emaciated and haunting life-sized human figures stand as if walking towards the emigration ships on the Dublin Quayside.
