National Famine Way Custom House Quay Commemoration

When: Thursday, 30 May, 2019

The National Famine Way Custom House Quay Commemoration Launch will begin with the arrival of a group of Famine Walkers in the CHQ building at the end of their 167km, 6-day walk from Strokestown Park along the National Famine Way. The Famine Walkers will have followed in the footsteps of the 1,490 former tenants from Denis Mahon’s estate in Strokestown, Co. Roscommon, who were forced to emigrate from Dublin and Liverpool on some of the worst of the coffin ships during the summer of 1847, when over half of them perished.
