- Old people have stories they heard about the famine of 1846.
It affected the district very much because a great many died of disease and starvation and a great many people left this district after the Great Famine.
Before that time the district was very thickly populated.
There are still a great number of sites of houses which were then occupied and now in ruins.
The potatoes decayed in the ground because of the blight.
The people of that time were glad then to eat raw turnips, weeds, seaweeds dogs and cats when they could get them.
The grain grown in this district was at the ports ready to be sent out of the country.
During the Great Famine the government gave the men of this district relief works.
It was to build the Ballinamow Canal.
