Exhibition: The Irish Potato Famine

Exhibition: The Irish Potato Famine

Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Floor 2., Monday 14th May - Sunday 30th September 2018

We look forward to bringing our Famine exhibition back to the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Dublin in 2018.

If you have an interest in Irish History then this will be one of the best things to do in Dublin this summer. This year's exhibition will have a unique Famine era artefact on display. An original 18th century coffin carrier that played a vital role during the Irish Potato Famine. The bodies of those who died in the workhouse were placed on top of the carrier and brought to their final resting place. Some workhouses found a way to cut costs by using a sliding coffin which included a hinged door. Once the burial took place, the body would drop out while the coffin could be lifted from the grave and used for the next victim.
