FOOD FOR FAITH: The Famine Legacy of the Achill Mission Colony with Patricia Byrne

1 October, 2018 @ 6:30 pm

SORRY – BOOKED OUT

Did Edward Nangle and the Achill Mission Colony save hundreds of Achill islanders from famine disaster, or did they shamefully exploit a vulnerable people for religious conversion? The dramatic story of the Achill Mission Colony exposes the fault-lines of religion, society and politics in nineteenth century Ireland and continues to excite controversy to the present day.
