Description

Learn about Black ’47, the year 75,000 Irish refugees fleeing the Famine landed on Montreal’s wharves. The tour visits key sites associated with this tragedy, such as the locations of fever sheds, burial grounds and hospitals, providing in-depth history about the Irish Famine's impact on Montreal in 1847.

Led by Donovan King, the Irish Famine in Montreal Walking Tour also supports efforts by the Irish Monument Park Foundation to establish a commemorative park on the gravesite of over 6000 Irish Famine refugees.
