    Default Liverpool's Irish Community

    Tens of thousands of families came to Liverpool during the potato famine in the 1840's, and there is still a huge Irish community in the city.

    I heard something about Old Swan yesterday, there was apparently a mass grave found with thousands and thousands of Irish dead bodies, murdered and blamed on the potato famine, Tom Slemen has something to do with this story I was told.

    Any info?

    Liverpool. Monument at Hardman St. More than a million Irish arrived in Liverpool during the Great Hunger, many moved on to America and other places, but many settled here as well. Some who stayed did not do so by choice. In 1847 alone, more than 7,000 paupers were buried in mass graves here.
