The National Memorial to An Gorta Mór is located at (a new temporary location) 109 Spruce Street in Philadelphia Pa, USA. This memorial commemorates the struggle and pain of those Irish who fled their homeland in the face of a hunger of catastrophic proportions. It celebrates their courage that forged an enduring link between Ireland and America.
