The Great Hunger Ireland 1845-1849 is a book written in 2008 about the Potato Famine in Ireland. It was written by British historian Cecil Woodham-Smith, who was born in Wales but of Irish ancestry. In her book, Woodham-Smith said that the British government was irresponsible when dealing with the famine. She especially criticised Sir Charles Edward Trevelyan, the British administrator who was in charge of famine relief.
