NEW PUBLICATION “IRISH FAMINES BEFORE AND AFTER THE GREAT HUNGER”

by ionaddeirbhile

The focus on the Great Hunger has overshadowed other periods of famine and food shortages in Ireland and their influences on a society in which poverty, hunger, emigration, and even death, were part of the life cycle and not unique to the 1840s.

This book features Essays from the June 12–15, 2019 Conference of the same title at Quinnipiac University, Connecticut. You can find the book online at kennys.ie  Cork University Press and Amazon
