    As part of the group who gathered support and raised the money to commission this monument, I thank you for this photo. It was the wish of Mayor Leo Farley to have a monument commemorating the Irish who came to Lowell. I gave all the materials/memorabilia from those events and efforts to David McKeon for his St. Patrick’s Church archive. Bishop Rocco blessed the monument at a ceremony in 1977.

    Nice work. Strategically located between Cardinal O’Connell (1859-1944) and Lowell City Hall.
