We gratefully acknowledge grant support from the Government of Ireland

We are deeply grateful to the Government of Ireland for a grant to upgrade a pathway from the road to the monument. This project which will begin in the spring of 2024 will enable current and future generations to visit this important historical site to reflect on their heritage and learn more about their ancestors. This grant was awarded through the Emigrant Support Programme — special thanks to Ambassador Eamonn McKee and the team at the Embassy of Ireland in Ottawa.
