Quinnipiac Irish Famine museum: 1,500 articles and illustrations relating to Ireland’s Great Hunger are now part of the museum’s digital database.Photo by: Quinnipiac Irish Famine museum. The Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT has launched a digital database of materials relating to Ireland and its devastating famine of 1845 – 52. 

The new database offers students, scholars, historians, and interested members of the Irish diaspora free access to over 1,500 articles and illustrations. They include excerpts from illustrated newspapers and publications such as “The Illustrated London News,” “Punch,” “The Pictorial Times” and “The Graphic.”

“Because photography was in its infancy, these illustrations were how people saw and learned about what was going on in Ireland at that time,” said Grace Brady, the museum’s executive director. A key part of the museum’s mission is to educate people about this avoidable tragedy in Ireland’s history and the database is another way to do so,” she added.

The database officially launched on, December 16, with a Dec. 16, 1848 sketch from “The Illustrated London News” depicting a starving family that had been dragged from its cottage and forced to spend Christmas in a hole, burrowed in the ground “like otters and snipes.”

The museum acquired the volumes of the pictorial newspapers from Kennys Bookshop and Art Gallery in Galway. Four scholars from the museum worked for over a year to ready the scans for public viewing.

“This database provides a unique insight into the aesthetic, technical and contextual roles of pictorial newspapers in narrating and interpreting the Famine,” said Niamh O’Sullivan, Quinnipiac’s Professor Emeritus of Visual Culture and Curator of Ireland's Great Hunger Museum.

“The value of the database to scholars, teachers, researchers and students, no less than the diaspora, is inestimable. The museum's commitment to Famine scholarship is imbedded in this ongoing ambitious digitization program.”

Over the course of the next year, articles from before 1845 and after 1852 will be added to the database.
You can access the database here. Learn more about the Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum, the world's largest collection of visual art, artifacts and printed materials relating to the Irish Famine, here.

Here's a short promotional video for the museum:

The Lender Family Special Collection is one of the most extensive collections of literature in America devoted to Ireland’s Great Famine. The An Gorta Mor collection includes nearly 700 volumes regarding the famine and related events. Some of these volumes are extremely rare and were written at or close to the time of the famine itself. The collection is available for scholarly research and may be used only on the premises.

 Tourism Ireland

From beautiful scenery, friendly locals, fascinating history and delectable food and drink, there are countless reasons to visit Ireland. The country is small and easy to explore, convenient to reach with regular direct flights from the US, Canada, and mainland Europe, and no visa requirements are needed for an exhaustive list of countries. Those are by no means the best reasons to hop on that plane, however. Here are just a few more that are sure to get you on your way here.

"A Hundred Thousand Welcomes"

Irish people are famous all over the world for the friendly welcome they offer visitors to their country. A holiday in Ireland undoubtedly involves several lengthy chats with locals in pubs, shops or even on the street, as well as endless hospitality from everyone you encounter. If you enter an Irish person’s home, they will insist on you having a cup of tea at the very least, and you’re guaranteed to leave with several new friends for life at the end of it!

Don't just visit Ireland - jump in!
