Ireland 1845 To 1916: Famine To Rising

Ireland’s Great Famine of 1845 resulted in the death of one million people by starvation and disease and the emigration of more than a million, plummeting the country’s population and exposing the inequities of Britain’s rule. The Famine was a watershed in Irish history, driving transformational change in every aspect of Irish life – social, religious, cultural, and political. Explore the Famine, its historical underpinnings, and the subsequent grass-roots efforts that sparked the revitalization of a distinct national identity.
