The End of Outrage

Post-Famine Adjustment in Rural Ireland

Breandan Mac Suibhne

  • An intimate history of a small rural Irish community in a time of great change, the aftermath of the Great Famine
  • Most histories of Ireland's Great Famine explore what was done to and for the poor by landlords, charities, and the state; this volume draws attention to what the poor did to and for each other
  • Allows students of Irish theatre to revisit debates about the historicity of Brian Friel's classic play Translations (1980)
  • Offers a research template for family historians with access to digital research tools
