In the mid 1990's, a committee was tasked by the Irish government to run a program of events in 1997 throughout Ireland to commemorate the great Irish famine. The committee had a budget of €250,000 to organise events throughout Ireland and to conduct new research on the Irish famine which plagued the our country from 1845 to 1851.
