In 1995 the Thurles Church of Ireland community donated one third of this building to create a famine museum to commemorate those who lost their lives through disease & starvation, both here and abroad, during the Great Famine of 1845-1850.
It houses the largest collection of memorabilia pertaining to the Great Famine of 1845-49.
