Historical Day

Killary Fjord Historical Famine Outing

content_experience_historicalday_007This special experience day is a unique chance to learn about the terrible hunger that overcame the Irish population in the mid 1840’s.

The day involves being brought by power boat along Killary Fjord to an abandoned famine village in a truly beautiful scenic but poignant location where we can begin to understand the complex tragedy of the famine. This includes everything from the dependency on the potato to the culture and politics of the time and the harsh evictions that soon followed and scattered the Irish to the four corners of the world.

There will be time to enjoy a special Delphi packed lunch in this beautiful poignant landscape which remains vividly unchanged since famine times.  A wonderful day out, the experience will remain with you forever. Please contact the office for further details.
