Saint John Area Irish Memorials

As the largest port in New Brunswick, Saint John experienced the largest numbers of immigrants to arrive from Ireland during the 19th century. The influence these immigrants had on the development of St. John and Kings counties in the early years was great indeed.

In the Saint John area, memorials to these intrepid souls include Celtic Crosses, a plaque, and a granite marker located in various places within the counties.
