Installation of Irish Hunger Marker & Blessing of the Grounds
Silver Lake Golf Course – at the existing Irish Memorial (by restaurant)
Free event – all welcomed

*The larger of the two Marine Hospital-Quarantine Cemeteries (1799-1858) is still intact under a portion of the Silver Lake Golf Course. Staten Island is the first US City to install the international Irish Hunger Marker. These markers are being placed at all Irish Famine unmarked grave sites throughout the world.
