An Irish Family in the Great Famine - A One-hour Lecture on 16 January
About 80% of today’s English people have Irish ancestry. In this talk, Stephen Lally looks at Irish lives in the rural west of Ireland during the famine years between about 1800 and 1850.
Stephen looks at:
- How people lived;
- Their houses, possessions, food, work, education and entertainment.
Stephen also touches on politics, social attitudes and the reasons for mass poverty and emigration.
