    Doolough valley near Louisberg, site of the Famine walk. The famine walk retraces 'a journey of horror' which local people made through the Doolough Valley on the night and morning of 30-31 March 1849. The immediate cause of the death march was the arrival of two 'commissioners', who were to inspect the people and certify them as paupers, so entitling them to a ration of three pounds of meal each. For some reason the inspection was not made. Darragh Mason Field
