Told in diary form, this chronicles the unfolding calamity as seen through the eyes of those who experienced the Famine, either as victims, or as priests and ministers who strove to alleviate the plight of the starving. With most of its material never published before, this makes a major contribution to a better understanding of the Famine. Beautifully designed and printed -Doctrine and Life. This is probably the best local history about the Famine yet written. -The Irish Times. The fairest book on the Famine I have read so far. -The Sunday Times. The accounts of the famine here have an immediacy not found elsewhere.... A significant addition to the extensive literature on the famine. -Studies.
