From the Back Cover: 'This famine is stalking through our land, and pestilence in her train is accomplishing the work of destruction.' These words were written in 1847 - not about Skibbereen but about Lurgan. How the Famine affected Munster and Connacht is well-known, but the Famine in Ulster has received much less attention. Two myths have grown: the first, that the presence of the linen industry insulated the area against the Famine and second, that Ulster was unaffected because, in the words of a prominent Lurgan landowner of the time, 'Northerners are a hardworking industrious people, and the blessing of God is upon their labours'. Using detailed historical archives, Gerard Mac Atasney shows how the Poor Law Board of Guardians and local voluntary relief committees responded to the Famine in the Lurgan/Portadown area, struggling with what they saw as 'this dreadful visitation'. It is a record of tragedy, incompetence, disorganisation and ignorance. The book indicts the local gentry whose ideas blinded them to the potential and real dangers of the Famine until it was too late. Gerard Mac Atasney makes an important contribution to the contemporary debate about the extent to which Ulster was historically different from the rest of Ireland.
