Boston: I is for the Irish Connection

Welcome to my third year participating in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. This year’s theme is BOSTON.

Today’s letter is I which will showcase the Irish Connection.

The Irish Famine Memorial is a lovely tribute to the brave families who left their native country for the hopes of a better life in America. Located in the middle of this bustling city, I stumbled upon this little park while walking to Quincy Market. I probably spent thirty minutes viewing the statues, reading the accompanying plaques, and counting my blessings.

This statue accurately depicts the dire
poverty of the Irish during the Great Famine.

A second statue depicts an Irish family
who are living the American dream…
plenty of food, adequate clothing, and aspirations
for an even brighter future for the next generation.
