University College Cork, and the Irish Department of Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht, collaborated to create the Great Irish Famine Online. The project displays detailed information on the famine’s effects and enables users to visually analyze pre-and post-famine statistics for their locality, charting changes in the human and social landscape across Ireland.

The database is comprised of over ­­­twenty categories, from population to education, for all civil parishes and towns of Ireland. The mapping of the famine at this level reveals the complex local and regional disparities, which raises questions about the diverse social conditions and relief responses in the various localities. ♦

  1. My father Francis K. McGuire is first generation to American from Ireland. He married Katherine a non- Irish. My interest in Ireland came after my fathers death. I graduated from the Minneapolis School of Art with a BFA receiving a scholarship to the Maryland Institute College of Art /Rinehart School of Sculpture in Baltimore, Maryland where I earned a MFA. I became a Professor of Art and was awarded a sabbatical to Ireland in the1970’s. That is when an intense concentration for me began. My sculpture and drawings have connected me to my Fathers country and I consider myself an Irish American for sure. At your convenience check out my website – patrickmcguire.com Thank you.
