  What can one say?
by ChrsStrl

Just down from Custom House is the rather moving sculpture of a number of figures made to represent the poor who left Ireland during that time to find hope elsewhere.

It was sculpted by Rowan Gillespie and commemorates the 1845 famine. The figures are tall and elongated - the strecth making them thinner. There is a rather nicely done dog amidst them.
