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.
