Please join us on Tuesday, August 6th, between 5:00-6:30 P.M. at Meg O’Malley’s in the Guinness Room located inside the restaurant.  This is, as always, a time dedicated to Irish culture and heritage.

During the August Craic Session the topic of discussion will be about ”The Great Hunger” that occurred in Ireland during the mid 1800s. To understand the dynamics of the Great Hunger (An Gorta Mór), one must realize the expanding population of early 1800′s Ireland and the growing dependency on a single crop – the Potato. To realize why it lasted for five years one must understand the politics,culture and economics of the time, since full crop failures did not occur every year between 1845 and 1850.  It is our hope that you will find this session quite informative.

Florida State President of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Greg Seán Canning, will be our guest speaker.  We hope to see you there.  Sláinte!
