GREAT FAMINE VOICES 2022 presents Great Famine Voices New York State

Great Famine Voices New York State shares the stories of Irish-American New Yorkers and the descendants of Famine Emigrants from the Irish American Heritage Museum in Albany, the Irish Cultural Center of the Mohawk Valley in Utica, the Erie Canal Museum, Le Moyne College in Syracuse, and the Buffalo Irish Center. Featured guests recall how their ancestors left Ireland during the Great Hunger and afterwards to start new lives along the Erie Canal. The film is dedicated to Eileen Patricia McMahon Zogby in whose name an annual Irish lecture has been established at Le Moyne College. Her discovery that her ancestors fell victim to the Great Hunger inspired her sense of social justice to learn lessons for today as part of her enduring legacy.

Great Famine Voices New York State is hosted by the National Famine Museum, Strokestown Park and Irish Heritage Trust as part of the Great Famine Voices 2022 season. It is funded by the Government of Ireland Emigrant Support Programme.
