The New York grave of an Irish woman who was the first emigrant to pass through Ellis Island has been marked with a Celtic cross.
Clergy members joined Annie Moore’s descendants and admirers on Saturday in a Queens Cemetery.
She died 80 years ago, but her unmarked grave was discovered only two years ago.
She was 17 when she arrived in New York from Co Cork in 1892. The Irish consul general in New York says she is a symbol for the hundreds of thousands of Irish who settled in New York.
Ellis Island was the gateway to America for more than 12 million immigrants.
As many as 5,000 people a day passed through the processing centre at its peak in the early 1900s.
