Why The Great Hunger?


We’ll be at the St. Ignace Public Library on February 6, 2019, at 7:00 pm. We’ll impart a wee bit of knowledge upon the good folks in and around St. Ignace.

The topic is “Why The Great Hunger”, subtitled “Why Are There So Many Irish-Americans”. We’ll talk about the conditions of Ireland leading up to the potato famine, and why the famine was so calamitous to the Irish people.

Check out the library’s web site and Facebook page.

ClanDonnell and the clan live over an hour south of the Mackinac Bridge, and St. Ignace is on the north side of the bridge. This event means a bridge crossing, which can be treacherous in the winter. Let’s hope February 6 is a nice sunny day!

AND The Sault News of Sault Ste. Marie ran a nice feature on ClanDonnell for the St. Ignace program as well.
