Share 'Commemoration of the Victims and Emigrants of the Irish Famine 1845-1852.'
Many convicts were transported to Australia during 1845-1852 because of
the 1840’s famine that cost the lives of well over 1.5 million and saw a
million plus people leave Ireland, many on coffin ships.
With the Cascades Female Factory Project Manager, Shirley McCarron’s support and assistance, I organised a Commemorative Event held in conjunction with many others in Ireland and elsewhere.
