National Famine Memorial

The National Famine Memorial is a bronze monument in Murrisk to commemorate the millions who perished in the Great Famine. Created by John Behan, the dramatic sculpture depicts a “Coffin Ship” with skeleton bodies in the rigging, where the term “Coffin Ship” was used to describe the ships which left Irish shores horrendously overcrowded with emigrants fleeing the famine. The dire and unhygenic conditions on board ensured that many did not reach their destination.
