Food for Faith: The Famine Legacy of the Achill Mission Colony

Printer-friendly version

Monday 1 October at 6.30pm in Raheny Library. This event is now fully booked.

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. This talk is hosted by Patricia Byrne. The event is free. Booking is recommended.
