The Jeanie Johnson, docked at Custom House Quay on the north banks of the River Liffey in Dublin’s city centre, is a replica of a Famine ship which brought impoverished Irish people from  from Tralee in County Kerry to America in search of a better life between 1847 and 1855. Visitors can board the Jeanie Johnson to  experience what the cramped conditions were like on these “coffin ships” for the millions of people to made the voyage to the New World during the Famine and its aftermath in Ireland. See www.jeaniejohnston.ie for more information.

 

This stunning photograph of the Jeanie Johnson was taken at night, with the lights of the Dublin Docklands behind, by Infomatique.
