A historical museum to remember the drama of the Great Famine

Skibereen is an Irish town which was deeply marked by the Great Famine… An Irish song about it : the “Old Skibbereen”, which tells the terrible conditions of the Irish Famine.

To better pay homage to this sad episode of its history, the city has opened a museum dedicated to this event: the Skibbereen Heritage Centre. On the programme is a poignant exhibition on the living conditions of the time, with the terrible figures concerning mortality in the village (between 8,000 and 10,000 are said to have been buried in the town’s cemetery, the Abbeystrewery Cemetery).

A dark, but really interesting subject!
