Today’s FriFotos theme on Twitter is HISTORY, and that got me thinking of the Irish diaspora and their impact on culture around the world. The Irish truly have changed the course of history in many lands… hopefully for the better 🙂 !
It might surprise you to find out the photo above was not taken in Ireland… instead, Corey snapped it last year while in New York City! The Irish Hunger Memorial is located in Battery Park City at the west end of Vesey Street.
The site looks as though a plot of land was plucked from the Irish countryside and transported to the Big Apple. There is a ruined cottage and stones collected from each county in Ireland.
(Our apologies to Armagh, Corey missed photographing your stone – if anyone visits there, send us a pic… it’s at the top of the hill):
