An Gorta Mór: The story of Ireland's Great Hunger
Join me as we walk along the final steps of the National Famine Way to the Famine Memorial in Dublin City. We will talk about one of the most horrific periods in Irish history, The Great Famine, also known as the Great Hunger, the Famine or the Irish Potato Famine. This was a period of mass starvation and disease in Ireland from 1845 to 1852. Hear about some of the events that led up to this, what happened during this time and the after effects of the events that brought our county to its knees.
