    I watched the American version of 'Who do you think you are?' and they alighted this place in Ireland. It was used to house the very poor folks, who were then shipped out to other countries

    Cant find anything about it on here but certainly looks a very interesting place if anyone is near there

    Incredible video mate People sufferred so much in the past in Ireland. Make me a thankful for the little I got which is much more than what those people got. I am glad the urban explorers are able to capture the essence of these places with pictures. Good work all.
