The Great Famine (Irish: an Gorta Mór), the Great Hunger or the Irish Potato Famine, was a period of mass starvation, disease, and emigration in Ireland between 1845 and 1852.  About two-fifths of the population was solely reliant on this cheap crop for nourishment.  The famine was brought on by a blight of the potato crop that affect the country.   During the famine, approximately 1 million people died and a million more emigrated from Ireland.  Michigan is lucky to have this memorial.  It is a reminder of the Irish struggle, their great pride and their impact on the making of the United States.

Enjoy an amazing one man performance, “Message of Peace” by Sean Tyrrell.

A legendary Co Galway singer/songwriter, Sean shares a bit of Irish history

through song and story.  In this performance, Sean guides us through the inspiring

and tragically short life of John Boyle O’Reilly, a late 19th century Irish Boston-based

activist. Sean adds a unique flair to the songs with his distinctive voice, instrumental skills,

and reflective interpretations.
