Library Exhibition

Remembering Black ’47 , the worst year of An Gorta Mor.

This year marks one hundred and seventy two years since the beginning of the Irish potato famine of 1845 - 51 which saw the deaths of over one million people, and the emigration of a further one million from the shores of Ireland. The famine was a human tragedy of huge magnitude and its impact forever changed the demographic, social and political landscape of Ireland. By the time of the famine Ireland had been governed directly by the British parliament since the Act of Union in 1800, and over 85% of the lands were in the hands of landlords loyal to the crown. After years of subjugation a burgeoning poor population was totally dependent on the land, and the humble potato for their very existence. They lived in squalor and unimaginable poverty at the hands of ruthless and often absentee landlords. The manifestation of a national disaster had long been forecast by those looking on. What the exhibition will uncover is that Ireland did not suffer a famine, there was ample food in the country, but rather the final death blows of a genocide policy that had been in force in Ireland for centuries.
