Famine Letter Collection Bought By Irish Archive

Posted by admin on May 19, 2010

More than 2,000 letters that detailed financial correspondence between sub landlords and landlord agents to tenants during the famine have been sold to an Irish archive.

Adam’s auctioneers cannot reveal who bought the letters at this time, but an announcement will be made by the buyers in due course.

A spokesperson for Adam’s said, “After intensive successful negotiations, with Kenny’s of Galway acting as intermediary, we are delighted to announce that the Stewart and Kincaid Famine letters are to be kept together as a collection and given to an important archive here in Ireland, where they will, in due course, be available for academic research.”
