This week we are looking at the effects of the Great Famine on our hometown Kanturk. Brian wrote about the Famine Graveyard.
During the the Great Famine Kanturk was badly hit by deaths.
There is a Famine Graveyard about a mile outside Kanturk in Fairyhill.
I live very near to this Famine Graveyard.
The graveyard is in a small narrow stretch of land with a concrete cross in the middle of it.
The field has nothing grown in it.
It is now all overgrown and wild.
