The Famine in County Mayo, and comparisons with County Wicklow.
I will be giving a Slide show and lecture on the Famine Roads of East Mayo, based on the Famine Documents that my father found in the old family farmhouse outside Kiltimagh.
We will include photos of the documents, as well as slides and discussion of 3 specific Famine Roads, and Swinford Workhouse, and my own family’s experiences through these.
Genealogy with a vengeance!
