The Effects Of The Famine In Dungarvan & West Waterford

Willliam Whelan will deliver a talk-The effects of the famine in Dungarvan & West Waterford- on Saturday 23 October in the museum at 2.30 pm, in conjunction with the Return to the Déise festival, which  runs from Fri 22- Mon 25 Oct.

As part of the Famine Commemoration event in 1995, the museum published a detailed book entitled Desperate Haven-The Poor Law Famine & Aftermath in Dungarvan Union. 

William Whelan contributed a chapter on Food & Diet in the workhouse.  The book is an important resource for local famine studies and is now available on the museum's website, http://www.waterfordcountymuseum.org/
