ABSTRACT

So cataclysmic was the impact of the Great Famine on Ireland that in a survey like this the decade between 1845 and 1855 requires its own chapter. With the appearance of the potato blight in the autumn of 1845 the strength of the forces driving internal migration and emigration was dramatically increased. Although traumatic in the extreme, this did not mark a complete break with the past because while new migration flows were started in some areas, well-established flows were reinforced in others. The task of assessing change and continuity is made all the more difficult because few historians deal with the ‘pre-Famine’, ‘Famine’ and ‘post-Famine’ periods in a unitary way, and because so few have set out to identify continuities we are less conscious of them (Lee 2005, 211). Insofar as they can be reconstructed, the individual migration stories of the Famine generation exhibit a broad diversity, but all were affected by the general atmosphere of panic and the urge to escape. In popular imagination, the legacy of the Famine looms large over the entire Irish migration tradition, distorting the way many see both the century before and the century after: replica ships of this period, such as the Jeanie Johnston, are assumed erroneously to be ‘coffin ships’; emigrant ancestors, who in fact left earlier or later, are assumed to be Famine victims; and the Irish diaspora is assumed to have been generated entirely by the Great Famine.
