The Risen Cross
The aftermath of the Great Hunger ushered in a risen people determined to end British rule in Ireland. The principal outcome of the Great Hunger was the survivors and their relatives overseas would not tolerate a form of government that allowed such horror to continue to govern those they betrayed. This post-Great Hunger stone cross is covered in ancient Celtic symbols and design dating back to Celtic heritage. Nationalism and Catholicism made a grim recovery and a large majority of the population became irreparably committed to repossess themselves of their national parliament and independence from Britain. They would rule themselves; the concept of Sinn Feín was born.
