Posted by Jean-Yves on May 15, 2018

As part of today’s National Famine Commemoration at University College Cork, The Great Irish Famine Online has been launched.

This ground-breaking project allows users to access interactive maps containing detailed information on the impact of the Famine on each of 3,000 civil parishes and 1,600 towns across the island. You can analyse statistics that chart changes in the social, political and economic landscape of Ireland pre- and post-Famine. The statistics are taken from the 1841 and 1851 census.
