Dublin City Centre, Dublin, Republic of Ireland

No event in history has had a more profound effect on Ireland and the worldwide Irish Community than that of the Great Irish Famine (1845-1849).

Here you will see the Famine statues, presented to the City of Dublin in 1997.

These statues commemorate the Great Famine of the mid 19th century when Ireland lost more than one million people to famine and emigration.

The statues were designed and crafted by Dublin sculptor Rowan Gillespie.
