Replica of the Dunbrody Famine Ship
Replica of the Dunbrody Famine Ship
A traditional timber hulled vessel built locally in New Ross in 2001 as a replica of the 1845 cargo vessel which saw service as emigrant transport between 1845 and 1848 at the height of the potato famine. The vessel typically carried 176 passengers but on one trip carried over 300. Mortality rates on the vessel were low at 5%: passenger losses in the reception centres in America were much higher. The boat is moored as a museum by the quay in New Ross on the River Barrow.

The Dunbrody replica led the parade of tall ships from Waterford in 2005.
