This book is a worthy detailed record of the mass evictions in the 'Sack of Toomevara' that took place at the end of the Irish Famine (1845 - 1849) and sadly, how some of Toomevara's own local folk were involved in the dastedly acts inflicted on their own, the affects of which are still felt today within that community by those with connections to that event. Helen O'Brien is to be congratulated on her work as a job well done. This is an important contribution as a record for the future, as very little or nothing had been collated and penned on this, and it needed to be done.

Excellant book about a difficult time in Ireland. My family name has its origin in that part of Ireland, although I don't know if any of my ancesters actually came from Toomevara. Very well researched and detailed. The book comes alive with Ms. O'Brien's narrative of these sad events and highlights the strength of the survivors. Highly recommended.

Very detailed and well researched. Easy to read. Index is useful. Good resource for academics and genealogists I am researching Dwan and Fogarty families from Toomevara and surrounds.

It was well written and it answered my personal question as to whether my mother family's were hut tumblers . They were O' Mearas or O' Maras but they had moved to Limerick well before the Famine so they were not hut tumblers. It confirms the fact that the Brits were practicing genocide long before the Nazis.
