thank you both for reading my blog, Molly, Strokestown House was interesting, but kind of chilling that the landowners let people starve right outside their doors.

JeanMac, if I lived at that time i would have been one of the ones taking the orders; my maiden name means "poor man" so the kitchen is where i would be!
