DUBLIN
IRELAND
 
FAMINE MEMORIAL
  
 
The Famine statues, in Custom House Quay in the Dublin Docklands, were presented to the City of Dublin in 1997.


 

These statues commemorate the Great Famine of the mid 19th century. During the famine approximately 1 million people died and a million more emigrated from Ireland, causing the island's population to fall by between 20% and 25%.



 
 
Striking sculptures depicting migrating sufferers of Ireland's Great Famine from 1845 to 1852.
