This Celtic Cross was erected in 1909 by the Ancient Order of Hibernians to remember the Irish tragedy of  1847. It sits on top of a hill at the western end of the island and overlooks a portion of the ships anchorage. The unveiling ceremonies of this monument were attended by several survivors of the 1847 events.
