Unless I have missed something
I would like to know why the city is not marking any event to the Irish coming into this city( many by force ). A huge percentage of this city have Irish blood in them, The Irish have certainly left their mark here. I know we have the Wigwam named Paddy, but surely something should be done to mark what happened during and after the Famine.
Many passed through Liverpools port, and many made Liverpool their home.
They lived in some of the worst poverty ever witnessed in this city, yet they survived, and helped shape it into what it is now.
I just feel a bit miffed when its capital of culture and nothing seems to be getting done ( I hope im proved wrong, but please not an official Irish dance at the town hall please ) Yes I have a big Irish connection in my family still today, but im sure others must wonder why nothing is marked.?
Dublin has the famine statues leaving the port. Liverpool could have them here arriving in their new world?
