The "Jeanie Johnston" is one of the most famous Irish "famine ships," and its story is deeply intertwined with the history of the Irish Potato Famine and the waves of emigration that it sparked.
The Jeanie Johnston was a three-masted barque that was built in Quebec, Canada, in 1847. The ship was purchased by Irish merchants John Donovan & Sons of Tralee, County Kerry, for the purpose of trading and also to carry passengers from Ireland to North America.
Between 1848 and 1855, the Jeanie Johnston made 16 voyages to North America, carrying over 2,500 Irish emigrants, primarily to the United States and Canada. Remarkably, despite the treacherous transatlantic journey and the desperate conditions many of its passengers were in, there is no record of any passenger dying aboard the Jeanie Johnston, which was exceptional for famine ships of the period.
After its years of service, the Jeanie Johnston was eventually sold to a UK firm and was last seen in 1858. In the 2000s, a replica of the Jeanie Johnston was constructed in Tralee, Co. Kerry, and it is now moored in Dublin as a museum ship, serving as a testament to the harrowing journeys undertaken by Irish emigrants during the famine.
The story of the Jeanie Johnston is a reminder of the hardships faced by those fleeing the Great Famine, but also a symbol of hope, resilience, and the pursuit of a better life in a new land.
