The Irish Famine Exhibition is an enthralling look back at what is undoubtedly the darkest chapter in Ireland's history.
Over a million poor Irish people were forced to emigrate and over a million died of starvation. Almost two hundred years later the population of Ireland has not recovered to what it was before the famine.
This exhibition includes a variety original artifacts including an extensive collection of 19th century photographs and eye witness accounts. It also features a short film on the famine that covers subjects like the infamous Irish workhouses, forced evictions from farms and houses and the disease and starvation that the peasant Irish population were forced to endure.
Other material covered in the exhibition includes original newspaper accounts, an original Famine Pot and Famine Coffin carrier and an original letter of eviction from a tenant to his landlord.
