A Visit to an Abandoned Famine Village, Achill Island
On a drive to Achill Island,
we visited an abandoned famine village. It was quite moving to see a whole
village deserted from the atrocities of the Great Hunger. It was also amazing to see how close these houses were to each other in the village. They had a great view of the ocean, but sadly many died before they relocated to another area now inhabited by the relatives of the survivors of the Great (Famine) Hunger.
