The Great Famine in West Cork

We are held an open afternoon of our project " The Great Famine in West Cork" on Monday 18th from 2-3pm in the school hall. Our project was completed as part of the Discover Cork Schools Heritage Project and gives a very interesting insight into life in our area during the Famine. As part of our research we also visited Skibbereen Heritage Centre and completed the Famine trail around Skibbereen.
