Product Description

 

IRELAND

 

1838

 

This beautifully illustrated map represents Ireland in transition between two major potato famines.

 

The Great Irish Famine of 1740 – 1741 had been caused by extreme cold and then rainy weather in successive years that resulted in poor harvests.

Smaller famines had also hit Ireland in the 1790s and early 1800s.

Millions of people had died due to the famine and mass migrations.

In 1838 Ireland was on the verge of starvation, her population rapidly increasing, three-quarters of her laborers unemployed, housing conditions appalling and the standard of living unbelievably low.

This map is a great resource for genealogical or historical research.   The 11x 14 inch (or slightly larger) map is printed  on 80 pound archival paper and protected by our  archival quality polypropylene  sleeve.    An insert on the back of the map provides brief information about the map and a brief history of the area represented on the map. 

This map is reprinted from an original map which we own.
