Famine Memorial, Woman & Dog- Dublin, Ireland
Close up photo of a haggard woman and dog in The Famine Memorial, on Custom House Quay in Dublin. The Memorial commemorates the agony of the Great Starvation of the Irish population during the Great Famine 1845-1852. Because of the famine the population of Ireland was reduced by 25-30% due to starvation or emigration. The Irish diaspora brought their Irish ways and Celtic culture to enhance nations throughout the world. Especially to to Canada and the United States.
