Irish Famine Exhibition
Wednesday, 15 March 2023 - Saturday, 30 September 2023
About this event
The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland's turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word 'Famine' in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest empire in the world. There was sufficient food in the country throughout the 'Famine' years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee.
Some historians prefer to use the name 'Great Hunger' to describe this catastrophe.
Admission fee applies. A book and USB stick can be also be purchased.
