Irish Historical Sites and Events

Guest Author - Brenda Potter Reynolds

The Boston Irish Famine Memorial is located at the corner of Washington Street and School Street in Boston, Massachusetts just a few blocks from where the Irish first crowded into tenements along the waterfront. It is also along the Freedom Trail. There are two life sized sculptures in the park created by Robert Shure. One sculpture depicts a family leaving Ireland's shores, impoverished and desperate, and the other depicts a family arriving in Boston, filled with hope and determination.

iconiconThe Irish Heritage Trail is three mile walking tour (map) that takes you through Boston's downtown, North End, Beacon Hill and Back Bay. You'll learn about famous politicians, artists, matriarchs and war heroes, part of a rich tradition of rebellion, leadership and triumph that personifies the Boston Irish. All of the memorials are in public spaces and accessible to visitors.
