Bahaghs Work House Cahersiveen, County Kerry

Bahaghs workhouse is located about three kilometers from Cahersiveen on the road to Glencar. It used to be a lodge owned by the local McCarthy family. In 1846 is was converted to a sanctuary for the destitute. It was used for thousends of people who were covincted from their cottages during the famine.
Walking through the ruins today gives you very little understanding what the live was in this time but you can not help feeling a strange visitor.
