resting on their laurels. They have more channels in the pipeline and,
in conjunction with CIE Writers’ Group, they are now working on a
documentary "The Famine Pot." Much has been written about the potato
famine in Ireland in the 1840s. However, up to now, one aspect of it has
been almost ignored by authors and film makers. The part played by
Christian Churches in setting up “Soup-kitchens” has been largely
air-brushed out of our history.
- This documentary will be shown on An Lar and it is
planned to put it into schools at home and abroad. The producers would
welcome the help of readers. If anyone has a picture or drawing with an
“Irish famine flavour “ they are asked to scan it and email it to:
