Are you tweeting eviction? @famineeviction

For the benefit of those that don’t tweet or indeed have missed some of the many tweets which we have sent out on @famineeviction we are going to share some through the blog. Much like the call for information which we issued in September 2016, engagement through twitter has provided very useful information which enables us to understand the nature of famine eviction particularly at a local level. Here is a sample of some of the material which was recently uploaded to the twitter page: galway-eviction-may-1848
