Site of Famine Burial Pits at Abbeystrowery
The worst disaster to befall Ireland was undoubtedly the Great Famine that occurred during 1845 - 1850 as a result of successive potato crop failures. The town of Skibbereen suffered particularly badly, and it has been estimated that as many as 10,000 victims were buried at this site.
