Memorial Sculpture

The Famine Sculptures

The Famine Sculptures are a series of bronze statues located along Custom House Quay in Dublin, commemorating the victims of the Great Famine (1845-1852) in Ireland. Created by artist Rowan Gillespie, the sculptures depict emaciated figures representing the suffering and resilience of the Irish people during one of the darkest chapters in their history. Visitors can pay tribute to the famine victims and reflect on Ireland’s cultural heritage and enduring spirit of survival.

Address: Custom House Quay, North Dock, Dublin 1, D01 WY80
