One of County Mayo's larger memorials, recalling the grevious loss of life from Ireland's Potato Famine between 1845-52. During the famine, nearly 1 million people died and another million emigrated from Ireland; many escaped over the Atlantic to America in "coffin ships", hence the memorial's shape.
