Erected
to the memory of the poor
interred here
during the operation
of the
English Poor Law System.

In the immediate aftermath
of the Great ?Famine', this mass
burial place was opened in 1851 for
the poor people of the Kells District.
Their memory challenges us to end the
scandal of hunger in today's world of plenty
