In Memoriam of the Irish Famine
An Gorta Mor ? 1845 - 1852
For those lives claimed by it
and the Irish Immigrants
that survived and relocated
to the United States.

Erected By
The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick
Hudson County, N.J.

[ Back of Monument: ]
Dedicated to the sacred memory of thousands of Irish who, in order to preserve their faith, suffered famine and exile. The potato blight in Ireland was exasperated by a cruel, non-caring and inept foreign government. As a result, Children of Gaels died in their thousands having fled the laws of foreign tyrants and the artificial famine in the years 1845-1852.
Let this monument be a token to their name and honor from the Gaels of America. God save Ireland.
An Gorta Mor still stands as one of the most devastating famines in modern history.
