Remember Skibbereen!!

July 15, 2010

Skibbereen is to feature on the national airwaves this weekend with the broadcast of the documentary The Great Irish Famine: Remember Skibbereen which will be broadcast by TG4 this coming Sunday at 8.30pm.

The documentary was commissioned by Skibbereen Heritage Centre to mark the National Famine Commemoration which took place in Skibbereen last year. The film gives an overview of the famine and how it affected the people of skibbereen and surrounding areas.

The documentary includes interviews with some well-known historians including Professor Joe Lee of New York University (formerly UCC) and Dr Larry Geary of UCC, but also features local West Cork historians with an interest in the subject.
