The Hibernians of Division 11 in Nassau County have started on a project to erect a monument in remembrance of “The Great Hunger”. As free citizens it is important to remember all those who had to flee their homeland looking for a better life. Many made it to the USA and many died trying either in the crossing or soon after. Those Immigrants that did survive are the ones who built this great country, they deserve a monument.
The monument, will honor all those who were affected by the great hunger.
The Monument is dedicated to all who had emigrated due to hunger, religious persecution or oppression of any kind.
Assistance from individuals or organizations will be required to make this monument a reality.
We are now getting bids for the monument. The size and color of the stone to be used as well as the final design are being determined and balanced against the price.
