Sending Out Ireland's Poor 

Gerard Moran, NUI Galway, discusses "Shoveling out the Paupers: The Poor Law and Emigration from Irish Workhouses in the Nineteenth Century" based on his recent book which examines assisted emigration schemes to North America and Australia. Moran is the author of Sending Out Ireland's Poor: Assisted Emigration to North America in the Nineteenth-Century; The Mayo Evictions of 1860; and Sir Robert Gore Booth and His Landed Estate in County Sligo, 1814-1876: Land, Famine, Emigration and Politics.

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS.  We hope to welcome Prof. Moran to Ireland House in the future.
