An Gorta Mor

The Great Hunger Archive offers a collection of primary source materials from Irish workhouses during the famine of the mid-19th century as well as other documents and bibliographies related to Irish history. The minute books are a record of the administration, bookkeeping, accounts, and daily activities of workhouses for the poor, with original page images and transcriptions provided. There is also a multimedia presentation on these books.
