Description of this Book

This book examines the effects of the Great Famine on the people of Kinsale and surrounding countryside. It shows how famine, death and disease took its toll on one class in particular - the poor. In early 1847, the Kinsale workhouse was hopelessly overcrowded, and the parish priest of Kinsale described members of his flock as starving creatures, worn, emaciated and feeble and in whose skeletal faces he could scarcely recognize a single feature. This precipitated a chain of social dislocation, emigration, disease and death. [Subjects: Irish History; Nineteenth-Century History; Social History: Great Irish Famine]
