About this event

This Exhibition tells the story of what happened during those horrific years. We use rare 19th century photographs, witness accounts, contemporary sketches as well as maps and statistical information. Also on display are three American Newspapers containing articles on the state of Ireland at this time. A 15 minute film with seating is included in the Exhibition and the average time spent by visitors is 1 and 1/4 hours.
