5.0 out of 5 stars Mapping the Great Irish Famine: An Atlas of the Famine Years, 11 Jun. 2011
By 
Dr. Finbar O. Mahony "Fionn" (Ireland) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Mapping the Great Irish Famine: An Atlas of the Famine Years (Hardcover)
This volume is an excellent source for anyone interested in Irish family history as well as those studying the demographics and economic geography of the famine years in Ireland.

It is well presented and very readable.

If you want to get a feel for the Ireland of the day, the conditions that shaped the movement of your family from the land, or from town to city and from there to a new life abroad, then is is a starting point for that journey. Maps and more maps..but they tell the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars DELIVERS ON THE COVER TITLE, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mapping the Great Irish Famine: An Atlas of the Famine Years (Hardcover)
For a student of the Great Irish Famine 1845 -1850? It delivers facts and figures that bring home the overwhelming catastrophy that this was for a small nation on the very edge of Western Europe. It was also central in destroying the last vestige of an ancient Gaelic culture - despite the efforts of the modern Irish State, Gaelic language and culture is now on a precipice.

Buy it to better understand the whirlwind of the Laissez Faire school of politics that that was as virulent a virus as that which infected the potato crops of Ireland - and tainted British/Irish relationships ever since.

A must read, a must absorb!
