The Jeanie Johnston tells the story of the thousands of Irish people who fled the Famine and embarked on a treacherous voyage in the hope of a better life in North America. Step on board and you will be transported back in time to join them on their gruelling journey.
“They endured overcrowding, seasickness, disease, filth, starvation and storms…And they were the lucky ones”
While none of us will ever have experienced anything remotely like those poor souls on the Jeanie Johnston famine ship and the many other famine ships, we may have had a rocky boat trip or two.
ENTER: Tell us about the most memorable boat trip you've been on. Please keep it as 'clean' as possible, we don't all have the stomach for the gory details!(If you don't have a story, you can still just post below to enter)
