Featured in the image is a Famine pot which has been beautifully restored by Tommy one of out heritage guides. The Irish Famine Pot [which contained the soup] “sometimes referred to as workhouse pots” were made of cast iron. They came in various sizes and most of them were supplied by the Government under the Soup Kitchen Act to alleviate hunger and prevent starvation, by providing free soup to the populace.
