Claremorris Workhouse and Famine Burials

Claremorris Famine Memorial

Some time ago Pat Keane, Sean Fitzpatrick, Michael Reidy, Fr Peter Gannon and Bernard Guinann an archaeologist from Mayo Co Council, put together a documentary on the local Workhouse.

The results of the famine, the fever and the bodies which were thrown into an open grave, which is now covered over by a road.

Just a few years ago there was a memorial erected in honour of the dead on that roadside. Fr Peter Gannon performed the ceremony.
