Plaque: The Forgotten Irish

Erection date: 26/6/2017


The Forgotten Irish
In commemoration of that generation of post World War II Irish emigrants, both men and women, who left their homes, counties and country. They came to work and rebuild this city and country, ravaged and destroyed by war. Sometimes called "The Forgotten Irish", many would never return to Ireland. This plaque recalls their contribution and their loss.

Supported by Friends of the "Forgotten Irish" and the London Irish Centre. 26th June 2017
