Thank you for all the great work you are doing to educate people about the Workhouses of Ireland during the Hunger. You are honoring the victims, our family ancestors, by telling their story.

Is there still a chapel where visitors can go to say a prayer at the Workhouse for the victims ?

Are there annual Commemoration Services held at the Workhouse to show respect and dignify the memory of the victims ?

Sincerely,

Bill Fahey

Irish Hunger, 1845-51.
