General Comments, Dublin: 38 reviews and 33 photos


Fondest memory: Well not the fondest, maybe the saddest. This is a sculpture commemorating those who died in the potato famine in the late 19th century. Between the deaths and the migrations en masse to America it reduced the population of Ireland from 8 million to under 4 million. It made me stop and think. I am Irish on my fathers side and 'there but for the grace of God, go I..' for my ancesters fled Kilkenny during that period. Thank God they made it.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
