Ireland’s Famine Dead – Toronto, 1847

In 1847 38,560 Irish men, women and children landed on the shores of Toronto. Some 1,186 died upon their arrival or shortly thereafter. At the outset of this projectonly 32 names were known. Thanks to the great work of Prof. Mark McGowan, his son Patrick and research assistants Michael Chard and Neil Sands, we are proud to have recovered a total to date of 675. Their names will be forever engraved in the limestone sculpture at Ireland Park and have been returned to the citizens of Ireland in a commemorative book presented by Robert Kearns to H.E. Mary McAleese, president of Ireland, on the occasion of the opening of Ireland Park, June 21, 2007.

Following is the list of names we have found to date. It is our intention to continue the search until we have found all the names and space has been left in both the sculptural installation and the book to add these names when they are found.

Please note that as this is an evolving list, the names appearing on the Sculptural Wall are written chronologically from their discovery instead of alphabetically.
