Irish Church remembers The Famine

The Bishops of Ireland today publish a statement welcoming the first National Famine Commemoration Day which takes place next Sunday, 17 May.

The Bishops' statement remembers the past and reflects on hunger and famine today. The statement is available as part of a special feature on the homepage of www.catholicbishops.ie

Liturgy notes, information for parishes and the 1995 pastoral letter Remembering the Irish Famine also form part of this web-feature.
