Errill Tidy Towns are erecting a commerative plaque and limestone seat on this the 175th anniversary of the great famine. Both of these will be placed in close proximity to what once was the site of a soup kitchen during the said famine. It is phase one of our famine pot project. Phase two will be the instillation of the actual famine pot that was used in the soup kitchen. We have received support from Laois County Council Chief Executive Officer and Catherine Casey the heritage officer, for this project.
