Found along the Custom House Quay, this memorial, unveiled in 1997, commemorates the victims of the Great Famine of the mid-19th century in which one million people died and a further one million emigrated. This blow to the Irish population, which had a profound effect on Irish society, is blamed on the failure of the potato crop - the staple diet of many poor Irish during the 1840s.
The statues were designed and crafted by Rowan Gillespie, renowned Dublin sculptor.
