Memory of One Million People Who Died in Ireland

Plaque on a large bluestone rock:

'In memory of one million people who died in Ireland during the Great Hunger of 1845-52.

In praise of tens of thousands of dispossessed Irish who sailed to Hobson`s Bay to build a new life. In sorrow for the dispossession of the Bunurong and Woiworung people but in a spirit of reconciliation.

In solidarity with all those who suffer hunger today.'
