Thanks to Anthony McIntyre’s Pensive Quill for bringing this issue to public attention and thus helping to stop further desecration of the Holocaust mass grave in the once-grounds of the Dungannon, Co. Tyrone workhouse.

The Dungannon Herald newspaper reports that the planned further desecration of Dungannon's workhouse burial ground has been halted. The newspaper's date is not shown but it reports a meeting scheduled for 10 Feb 2019.
The article raises the question: will any planned memorial be truthful? Will it finally bear honest witness to the official murder of the workhouse's inhabitants during the 1845 through 1850 Holocaust (and probably until the 1900-1920 repatriation to England of Ireland's landlords), or will it be yet another obscene cover-up for the perpetrators? If the latter; if the monument fails to indicate that it was genocide perpetrated by the State, it will advertise to the world that the same genocidal forces still control Dungannon and the rest of Tyrone.
The fact that Ireland's abundant and varied food production was removed by armed forces of the British government, starving much of the population to death, cannot continue to be concealed. It ought never have been concealed. No free people would permit such falsification of history; such support for genocide.

P.S.: Tragic to relate, Ireland's Royal Dail have mounted an expensive campaign, led here in the States by its Consuls General, to try to revive the old, discredited, "Irish famine" lie and its concomitant lie of "the stupid Irish whose inadvertent suicides improved the world's gene pool."
