Famine Museum

Citation

Western - Over £200,000

The use of the existing stableyards at Strokestown Park House to create a Museum commemorating the Irish Famine seems entirely appropriate. The restrained and austere form of the museum, with its empty courtyards devoid of planting, is a perfect reflection of the terrible history displayed within.
