Welcome to Irish Famine Summer School Website

The 2018 Irish Famine Summer School will take place from 20th - 24th June 2018 at Strokestown Park, Co. Roscommon, Ireland. The theme is 'Irish Journeys: Famine Legacies and Reconnecting Communities'.

The Irish Famine Summer School is a joint initiative between the Irish National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park House, and Ireland's Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac University. 

We are very excited to enter into this phase in the life of the Irish Famine Summer School which will see it alternate between Strokestown and other famine research centres.
