As part of Heritage Week 2019, we are delighted to welcome the author of 'The Truth Behind The Irish Famine', Jerry Mulvihill, for a talk about the Great Famine.

Jerry Mulvihill grew up in Ballintcleave, County Kerry, Ireland. He says: “Growing up in Kerry, I always knew about the famine, and the ruins of that time are scattered across the landscape. I felt there were a lot of mistruths and injustices out there, and I wanted to investigate, then share what I learned. I did this through historical eyewitness accounts and diaries. And from these quotes I commissioned artwork to create a better understanding of this tragic time.”
