Cultrasna Famine Village

2 km from the town there is an example of a ‘clumped village’.

This village formation was a result of the population rise 1800-1841. Subsequently the area was sub-divided into smaller plots where the people tried to sustain a living. This type of village suffered drastically during the famine of 1845 – 1849.
