This is a beautiful memorial, one of a kind for sure. If you're curious or just in the area you should stop by. The walkable part of the memorial is all grasses and plants native to Ireland. Underneath is a tunnel with the names of those who died in the famine. Very touching and you also get a beautiful view from the top of the hill.
