Irish Views of the Famine - 1846 - 1849
For those who are interested in finding out what made their forbears leave,
and what living conditions were like in Ireland in the 1846 - 151 era I
have found some fascinating (and depressing) stories and archived articles at;

Please understand that these are researchable archives and may take some
trawling and reading, however for an understanding of life at the time they
are excellent sources.
Best Wishes,
