Cleveland Remembers "The Great Hunger" — An Gorta Mór
— Ireland's Potato Famine 1845-50. —This memorial commemorates the passing of 150 years since the misery known as "The Great Hunger," a carnage visited upon the Irish nation diminishing her population by millions. As a result of imposed political and economic structures, many of the Irish were driven to the potato alone for survival. Consequently, Ireland's people starved to death, or were forced to emigrate, many dying on "coffin ships" en route. This is one of the most tragic and significant events in Irish history.
