From the Thomas Davis Lecture Series, this is the most wide-ranging series of essays ever published on the Great Irish Famine and will prove of lasting interest to the general reader. Leading historians, economists and geographers - from Ireland, Britain and the United States - have assembled the most up-to-date research from a wide spectrum of disciplines, including medicine, folklore and literature, to give the fullest account yet of the background and consequences of the famine. Contributors include Dr Kevin Whelan, Professor Mary Daly, Professor James Donnelly and Professor Cormac Gráda. Editor Cathal Póirtéir has been broadcasting on RTÉ Radio 1 for over thirty years.
