Scope and Content
A questionnaire entitled “The Great Famine of 1845-1852” was circulated in 1945 by the Irish Folklore Commission among its full- and part-time collectors, and its extensive network of correspondents. This was in response to a request from a group of historians appointed by the Government to produce a major study of the Famine to mark the hundredth anniversary of its outbreak. Some 4,650 hand-written pages of information were recorded by Commission staff and correspondents from oral sources in all four provinces, and these were delivered in the same year to the expert group of historians for analysis. The first analysis of this material, by Roger J. McHugh, was published in 1956. Seamus Ó Duilearga, the Commission’s Honorary Director, is credited by the editors of The Great Famine, R. Dudley Edwards and T. Desmond Williams (in which McHugh’s analysis appears), with suggesting to them the project of compiling a history of the Great Famine. This valuable oral source has been extensively used by historians and researchers in other disciplines since then [cf. Cormac Ó Gráda, Black ’47 and Beyond, The Great Irish Famine in History, Economy, and Memory (Princeton University Press, 1999), and Cathal Poirtéir, Famine Echoes (Gill and Macmillan, 1995), the latter in which many questionnaire replies are featured, including translations of Irish-language material].
Arrangement
Material returned by individual collectors and contributors is collated and bound in eight manuscripts. The first manuscript deals with Munster, the second with Ulster, Leinster and Connacht. The third manuscript is a special notebook on the famine in County Kerry. The fourth manuscript deals with the famine in Counties Cork, Clare and Waterford. The fifth manuscript covers Mayo, Leitrim, Sligo, and parts of Armagh and Down. The sixth manuscript is County Galway and the seventh manuscripts is for County Donegal. Finally the last manuscript is a special notebook on Leinster. Material is arranged by county and civil parish. The material bound in each manuscript also includes cover sheets and covering letters from collectors and respondents. A date-stamp from "Coimisiún Béaloideasa Éireann" (Irish Folklore Commission) normally appears at the beginning of each contributor’s material. Each bound manuscript has its own continuous pagination, irrespective of any original numbering. The first manuscript in the series (Munster) contains a list of the questions set out in the questionnaire and an explanatory note by archivist Seán Ó Súilleabháin.
