This is the first full account of the role of the Irish Catholic Church in the Great Famine of 1846 and its aftermath. Donal Kerr shows how the Famine and the subsequent evictions led to rural violence and a spate of assassinations culminating in the murder of Major Mahon. Kerr has charted how the Famine and the violence soured relations between the Church and State and ultimately destroyed Lord John Russell's dream of bringing a golden age to Ireland.

Donal A. Kerr, Professor of Ecclesiastical History, St. Patrick's College, Maynooth.Review:
`Once more Professor Kerr marshals his formidable grasp of British and Irish archival material to write a detailed yet broad account of what was arguably the last attempt by a British government to make the Irish Union a reality ... his fine book on these momentous years in the history of the
Union does seem to bear out, in some degree at least, Sir Robert Peel's earlier verdict that 'an honest despotic government would be by far the fittest government for Ireland.''
