This gallery features images and documents relating to the Great Famine, 1845-1850. The Inishowen Union Workhouse was located in Carndonagh, on the site of what is now the Carndonagh Hospital, with the Famine Graveyard preserved on the right hand side of the entrance. The Brachán House on the Carn-Malin road was visited by people who had fallen on hard times to receive portions of meal to fend off starvation. More information on the Famine can be found under the Famine category in the menu.
