This is the eighth year in which the Great Famine has been marked with a formal Commemoration and the first time that the Commemoration will take place in Northern Ireland. In recognition of the fact that the Great Famine affected all parts of the island, the location of the annual Commemoration has rotated in sequence between the four provinces since the first Commemoration took place in Dublin in 2008 and falls to Ulster in 2015. There will be a series of events and activities throughout Newry, Mourne and Down District Council area, and Newry and Mourne Museum would like to invite you to take part in our events and activities.

Ross was regarded as a hero and gentleman by his colleagues and opponents alike. This publication recounts the story of the man who had a pivotal role in the War of 1812 between Britian and America. That legacy of Ross is worthy of commemorating in County Down as well as in the United States, and continues to interest historians and tourists who visit Rostrevor.
