President Obama – Hunger Victims Graves

This is an email which was sent to the Whitehouse, and Ambassador Dan Rooney in Ireland, by  Michael Blanch

Dear Ambassador Rooney,

Regarding President Obama’s visit to Ireland.  We understand he may visit Glasnevin Cemetery / Museum and Daniel O’Connell’s grave.

There is a grave which has 40,000 to 60,000 “Famine” Victims/Martyrs in the Angels Plot lying side by side with the babes of innocence in Glasnevin Cemetery.  It is approximately a quarter the size of a football pitch.  It would be some distance from Daniel O’Connell’s grave, however there is a “Famine” mass grave with 30,000 Victims/Martyrs approximately 50 yards from Daniel O’Connell’s grave, with time restrictions of the President’s visit if President Obama could spare five minutes to lay a wreath at this site.   He would be honouring the “Famine” Victims/Martyrs and his own ancestors.

Michael Blanch
