  • Spent a few moments here honoring the famine victims. A cross, plaque and famine pot memorializes the many people who perished and worth a visit when in Donegal.  more »
  • Once you have seen one, and there are many in Ireland, they all tend to be the same. This one was smaller than others I had seen, but still worth the look.  more »
  • Coming from the states I didn't know this part of history as I should. This was a well maintained graveyard complete with a famine pot on site which would have been used to feed the poor in the town.....  more »
  • Very nice place to visit but could be better maintained cross needs painting grass left to grow wild and a big dead rat on the path
  • Brilliant so well worth our trip to see history so close.
  • Great part of the heritage. No graves at the grounds just this plaque
  • A sad place but worth seeing to let the impact of Irish history really sink right in
  • Quiet, calm reminder of the cruelty of humans to one another. No one need starve if we share. This tragedy was avoidable but for the lords who kept their wealth while their subjects died.
