  • If you are in Philadelphia, you MUST see this amazing sculptor of history. Words cannot describe the feelings you will have when you take it in. Whether Irish or not, you will see history, death, sick...  more »
  • In one corner of the Park at the back of the Penn's Landing on the Delaware River. While showing the facial expressions of suffering civilians, they're facing something (or have been at the mercy of?) Draws a striking appearance.

  • This memorial was well maintained and quite striking. In addition to the statue, plaques contained information about Irish immigration, the Great Famine and other historical details. The Memorial is well placed next to the river allowing for the open river to the East and Center City to the West. However, it's not as serene because of the nearby highways. Anyone with Irish ancestry should stop by to pay a moment of respect.
  • Some very cool and meaningful statues. Worth a visit if you're down by the Delaware River.
  • Beautiful sculpture. So realistic.
  • Very irish
  • Worth a stop on the way to the riverfront.
