Ennis

FOUND IN:

Ennis, County Clare, in western Ireland, was at the heart of the Famine, and was therefore chosen by Edward Rutherfurd as the setting for the main action of his 'Famine' chapter in his second Irish book. There was also a particularly interesting parliamentary election in Ennis, at the height of the Famine, and this is also part of the story.
