Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger

This is a splendid catalogue, marvellously illustrated and detailed in five excellent essays (two of them by the editor Niamh O’Sullivan) on the scale and impact of the Great Irish Famine. The format allows for generous illustration and it is scrupulously edited with all appendices in the shape of footnotes and index. Well worth adding to your library. Brian McAvera – Irish Arts Review Summer (June – August 2018)


Morgan O’Driscoll is one of Ireland’s premier specialist art auction houses and is delighted to be associated with Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum’s exhibition in Ireland.
