Afri Report on Famine Graveyards

A thank you from Bill Fahey in regard to the Afri report on Famine Graveyards.

Thank you for sending the copies of  “Famine Graveyards”. They contain much information about the History of the Hunger. Our Commemoration Committee in America is trying to work with the Irish Government Committee and have events all over the world to honor our family ancestors, who were the victims of the Hunger.

It would be great to have Masses at these Gravesites and memorials on the Annual Irish Government Commemoration dates. There are Memorials all over the world where events could take place and maybe raise funds for world hunger victims today.

All copies of this very clear and detailed report have been distributed. It lists the status of virtually all the Famine Graveyards, and many Workhouses, in Ireland.  We feel sure that Afri Great Famine Project, based in Dublin, would appreciate knowing there is support for an update and printing. This group can be contacted by e-mail at: afri@iol.ie
