From Famine To Freedom
“The rags seemed more animate than the bodies within. As they passed, the families regarded them. The children appeared marooned with hunger.”
The long and eventful history of Galway and indeed Ireland has captured the interests of millions of people worldwide. However it is really the turbulent years from the mid Nineteenth century until the establishment of the free state that we highlight on this informative and entertaining tour. This unique tour is offered from a Galway native and award winning researcher on this period in the cities history. The Great Hunger had a severe effect on the city and county due to mass migration and death associated with the potato and the situation in the country at the time.
