Dunbrody Famine Ship is replica of 19th century cargo vessel located in the center of New Ross in County Wexford. This kind of ships, (also known as "Coffin Ships") were used to transport people to North America and Australia during Great Famine times. The original Dunbrody was built in 1845, in Quebec (Canada), by an Irish emigrant shipbuilder, Thomas Hamilton Oliver for William Graves & Son, New Ross (Ireland) located shipping company. Dunbrody traveled between Quebec and New Ross and was able to carry out over 300 people. On its return way, the vessel was loaded with timber, cotton and guano.
