“Relief Work in Ireland during the Great Famine by the Quaker Central Relief Committee”, a talk by Rob Goodbody will take place in the Colgan Hall, Carndonagh at 11am tomorrow at 11.a.m. Rob Goodbody is a member of a distinguished Irish Quaker family with roots in Clara, Co.Offaly, where their sacking business supplied the Inishowen seed potato trade of which many senior Inishowen people have memories. His talk will focus on the relief work during the Famine without which many more thousands would have died. The cause of destitution in Ireland was not the lack of food but its restrictive distribution.. Potato crops failed from 1790 onwards but there was meal for those who could afford it. Inishowen escaped the worst excesses of the great famine.
