Who were the evictees?
One of the chief aims of this project is to ascertain how eviction impacted local communities during the Great Famine. Using a case study approach, over the coming weeks we will examine a number of communities which were affected by eviction. The eviction map (see https://irishfamineeviction.wordpress.com/eviction-map) provides a listing of where individuals and families were evicted from. Here are some of the families listed as having been evicted during the Great Famine.
