Jeanie Johnston T-Shirt
The Jeanie Johnston made her maiden voyage from Blennerville in Tralee, Co. Kerry to Quebec in Canada in 1848 with 193 passengers on board. She carried 2,500 Irish emigrants on 16 transatlantic voyages to North America throughout the Famine years. The original Jeanie Johnston was built in Quebec in Canada in 1847. She was commissioned by a Scottish-born shipbuilder and master craftsman, John Munn. She was purchased by Kerry-based merchants, John Donovan and Sons, for their family business. The ship sitting in Dublin Docklands today is an authentic replica of the original Jeanie Johnston, built to remember and honour Ireland’s Famine emigrants.
