Resources

In this page we will post notices of educational events organised by us or others and also provide details of useful books, websites and other resources.  If you wish to recommend a book or a film or website then please get in touch and hopefully we can build a really rich resource base which people can use to find out more about the Great Hunger.

Below is a small selection of items which will grow as the project proceeds.
