Bring Home Highlights of Major Exhibit Exploring Famine's Impact

A newly produced DVD follows on from an exhibition that was held in Dublin throughout the summer of 2017. The exhibition was called "The Irish Potato Famine (1845 to 1852)," and its purpose was to commemorate the 170th anniversary of the Famine year 1847.

The exhibition was a great success and many visitors inquired about the possibility of making the exhibition available in DVD or book form.

The DVD has been produced and is available for purchase HERE. It is compatible worldwide and will be a wonderful gift for a friend or loved one.

The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland's turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the (if not the worst) famine in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word 'Famine' in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest empire in the world (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the 'Famine' years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee. 

The DVD contains a 15-minute overview, which tells the story of the Irish Potato Famine, followed by 1 hour of stills that goes into the story in greater detail.

This DVD is dedicated to all victims of the Famine.
