The Dunbrody Famine Tall ship is a replica of the original Dunbrody, a 3 masted barque built in Quebec in 1845. She would have sailed regularly between New Ross and North America and Canada. After the great famine of 1840 she would have had a cargo of Irish immigrants from county Wexford ( usually one days walk from their homestead to the ship ). This replica would have been very similar to the ship which tranported the ancestral family of John F.Kennedy from nearby Dunganstown to the USA in the 1800s. Visit the ship for an insight into your ancestors immigration hardships and check the ship's manifesto, you never know!
