Stair na hÉireann/History of Ireland

The Great Hunger Memorial at Macy Park in Ardsley, New York was unveiled on 26 June 2001 to commemorate the suffering of millions of Irish who died or were forced to leave lreland.

The monument’s sculptor, Eamonn O’Doherty of Ireland, describes the memorial as comprising three related elements.

  • The first represents five members of an Irish family group.
  • The second element depicts the deserted shell of the homestead they were forced to leave.
  • The third element refers to the potato blight and consists of an overturned basket from which potatoes, as they spill onto the ground, metamorphose into skulls.
