AGM & Book Launch

Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday 11th April at 7.30 pm sharp in Edmund Rice International  Heritage & Conference Centre. 

Following the AGM, members are invited to attend the Waterford launch of  the Atlas of the Great Irish Famine published by Cork University Press, with guest speaker Dr Eugene Broderick, historian,
in Our Lady of Mercy Secondary School, Ozanam Street, Waterford.

Based on Atlas of the Great Irish Famine
Did your ancestors in the Waterford area survive or perish in the Famine?
Did they emigrate? Do you know anything about them? Is there a famine grave, a ‘hungry hill’ or a former workhouse near where you live?
Cork University Press and UCC Geography Department, in association with Mercy Secondary School and the Waterford Book Centre, will host a special talk on Thursday 11 April on the topic of the Great Irish Famine and its effects on the local community around Waterford.
The talk will be given by Mr Gear├│id McCarthy of University College Cork’s Geography Department, and is part of a special series of talks organized by University College Cork to mark the publication of the award-winning and critically acclaimed Atlas of the Great Irish Famine.
