Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger is an exhibition of artwork from Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, USA. This Museum has the largest collection of Famine-related art in the world. The exhibition has just finished at Dublin Castle and will open on 20 July at Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre in Skibbereen. We are delighted that the exhibition’s curator, Dr Niamh O’Sullivan, will speak at the West Cork History Festival on Sunday 18 August, and that additionally two of our field trips will include the exhibition and visits to Famine-related sites in and around Skibbereen.
