The End of Outrage
Post-Famine Adjustment
in Rural Ireland
Breandán Mac Suibhne

Focused on West Donegal in the aftermath of Ireland’s Great Famine, ‘The End of Outrage’ opens with an act of betrayal – a young schoolmaster, Patrick Mc Glynn, turning informer on a fearsome secret society, the Molly Maguire’s, ostensibly to prevent an attack on a tenant farmer. In illuminating the Mollies animosity to that farmer, Mc Glynn’s reason for betraying them and the memory of these’ sordid evets in a small community, Breandán Mac Suibhne reveals the decades after the Great Famine to have been an era of infidelity in which the rural poor dismissed as worthless much that had been dear to their dead.
