1,490 Strokestown-Liverpool Commemoration Walk

ArtsGroupie walks the National Famine Way

As part of our collaborative work on the Liverpool Irish Famine Trail, this May Artsgroupie CIC will join Liverpool Irish Festival and a team to walk from The National Famine Museum in the midlands of Ireland to the port of Dublin.

This commemorates the 1847 journey taken by 1,490 evictees from Strokestown Estate (Co. Roscommon, Ireland). The evictees were marched 165km to Dublin, to be put on cargo ships to Liverpool and thence to Canada. It’s estimated over half those who made the journey died before they reached their destination.

The walk sets off from Strokestown on Sunday May 19th 2024.
