The Deserted Village
Achill Island, Ireland. 🍀

The site dates back 5,000 years however the last settlers left the village as a result of the 1845-1849 famine and emigration throughout the successive years. There are approximately 100 houses deserted in the village.

    @Paul_Titov yes, many were. The population dropped significantly and since then never recovered to that level again.

    It's sad. May be this village has own unique history, but I think it is kind of global process (migration from village to city).

    @Andrey it was a village that was forced to leave because of famine...many would have went to the workhouses or emigrated on coffin ships to the USA or Canada.
