Treasures of the Strokestown Archive Virtual Exhibit

The new “Treasures of the Strokestown Famine Archive” Virtual Exhibit makes publicly accessible for the first time some of the most important archival records from the Great Hunger.  Discover poignant petitions that convey the voices of the dispossessed, rare emigration records of those who fled the Strokestown Park Estate in 1847, and testimonies about the assassination of the landlord Major Denis Mahon.  View exhibition here.

This virtual exhibit has been funded by The Heritage Council.
