Old World Famine, New World Plenty

"The sesquicentenary commemoration of the Great Irish Famine throughout the world has resulted in displays in several museums. Most have relied on the same few contemporary sketches to illustrate the dearth and devastation.

In 1847 and 1849 artists from the Illustrated London News travelled to some of the most affected areas, in particular Skibbereen in County Cork and Kilrush in County Clare."

This article examines the carer of Sir Arthur Edward Kennedy, who was born at Cultra, County Down on 9 April 1810, the fourth son of Hugh Kennedy and his wife, Grace Hughes.
