This is an adventure set in famine Ireland in the county of Mayo. Written by Colman O’Raghillaigh it tells the story of a family determined to escape the hunger and oppression of the time by risking everything to reach the ship sailing to america.

Hope you enjoy the illustrations. It was a real challenge once again to try and tell such a detailed story in a few images.

Well worth a read for all those who like a bit of history and irish or just irish history!!
