During a Biblical seven years in the middle of the nineteenth century fully a quarter of Ireland’s citizens either perished from starvation or emigrated in what came to be known as Gorta Mór the Great Hunger.
Tells the absorbing story of post-famine Donegal the Molly Maguires - a secret society who had set themselves up against the exploitation of the rural poor - and Patrick McGlynn - an avaricious schoolmaster who turned informer on them availing of hunger disease debt hardship and death to expand his holding at the expense of his neighbours.
The Great Famine is possibly the most pivotal event/experience in modern Irish history: in terms of mortality it is now widely accepted that over a million people perished between the years of 1845 and 1852.
