Thank you all for your patience but after more than two years of working away in the background to find a suitable site for a permanent memorial in Glasgow to An Gorta Mór, we are very pleased to say that the Irish Voice on Wednesday of this week (20/9/17) will carry the good news that a site has been chosen. This breakthrough in a two year logjam means that we can now press ahead with the long-awaited design competition and the programme of fundraising and educationals which we have been unable to progress in the absence of a site.
We were happy to give our friends in the Irish Voice this ‘exclusive’ and we hope many of you will snap up the print copy as a nice souvenir as well as get online early on Wednesday to find out the news.
After Wednesday’s announcement there will be nothing between us and a permanent and fitting memorial except a lot of fundraising and hard work. We are up for it and we know you are too!
