Neither of us were aware of the Childrens' Famine Memorial in Sligo before we arrived. Our taxi driver asked if we wanted to see it. Since both Kathy's and my ancestors were from this area, we have an interest in the victims of the famine.

This memorial isn't tall or spectacular in any way and not professionally done - this seems to make it even more important and touching. It's hidden away in the bushes and trees with only the iron tree that marks its location.

I've not been able to find and reference to it on the Internet, if anyone has any information regarding this memorial I would be very interested.
