2015 Famine Commemoration programme underway

The 2015 Annual Famine Commemoration programme has got underway this week in the Newry and Mourne district.

I've included the lectures I think will be of particular interest to family historians in my Events Listings (see yesterday's blogpost), but there are also many theatrical and musical performances, walks, exhibitions etc that may also appeal. So, if you're in the area and want to support the Commemoration, which is being held for the first time in Northern Ireland, download a copy of the full programme (right - pdf 1.1Mb).

The formal Commemorative ceremony will take place on Saturday 26 September at Newry's Albert Basin.
