This site, from the Geography Department, University College Cork and Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht provides us with new ways of seeing the Famine, by revealing the complex local and regional dimensions, which raises questions about the social conditions which prevailed in different localities and the diverse responses in terms of relief. Behind the maps are the stories of individuals and communities and how they fared during this traumatic period.
