The Great Famine, which took place in Ireland from
1845-1849, had a devastating effect on the country, not least in the huge numbers of
people who were forced to emigrate.
The Great Famine is recounted by the
Leinster Express newspaper of the time. This invaluable archive is the result of research
by the Kildare Heritage Project.
