The site of a tragedy from the Great Irish Famine in March of 1849 where many died of exposure to a storm on a trek seeking food. The site is also now remembered for the remarkable contributions made by native American Choctaw people raising money to send to Irish Famine Relief in 1847. The Choctaw people's own 1830 "Trail of Tears" was to be replayed in Doolough just a year after their donation. There is an annual Famine Relief Walk held at Doolough commemorating the tragedy, the Choctaw contribution, and the continued need to work to end world hunger.
