BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. - As a way of promoting Irish culture and heritage in Bucks County, The Jeanie Johnston, a recreation of a 19th century Irish emigrant ship will be visiting the Bristol waterfront from June 26-30, 2003. The ship will arrive from Philadelphia at noon on the 26th and leave for New York at 10 a.m. on the 30th..

Date : 28 July 2006

A ship built to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Irish Famine arrived in Bristol last night (27 July) and received a special welcome from the city’s Irish community.

The ‘Jeanie Johnston’ - a replica of a ship that carried 2500 Irish emigrants to the USA - was met at Bristol Dock’s lock gates in the Cumberland Basin by Deacon Kevin Moloney from Clifton Cathedral and Mrs Honoria O’Leary, a 101 year old former Irish emigrant to the USA.
