Famine Documents Collection

Marie Smith has  just heard that a private collection of Famine documents is going on sale in Dublin at the Adam Auction House on May 18.  It will be interesting to know where the collection will go – these are letters and items from the big landowners and letters of appeal for food and tenancy.  It is a very large collection and, we are told, it has been in the hands of a lawyer firm in Dublin for several years. If anyone has further details please enter in the comment section below
