	This part of the FAQ is mostly based on two books.  The
	first is a slim volume, a fairly impartial summary of recent
	work on the subject.  It's very strong on the economics but
	does not neglect the social and political aspects.

Title:		The Great Irish Famine
Author:		Cormac Ó Gráda
Publisher:	MacMillan
ISBN:		0-333-39883-1

	The second is Roy Foster's book Modern Ireland (see part 6 of
	the FAQ for publishing details) which contains a chapter on
	the Famine.

	Another book (recommended by Patrick Denny <denny@GFZ-Potsdam.DE>
	in this newsgroup) with a more contemporary slant is

Title:		The Great Irish Famine
Author:		Canon John O'Rourke
Publisher:	(Abridged reprint) Veritas Publications
ISBN:		1 85390 130 X   (Hardback 1 85390 049 4)


	Cecil Woodham-Smith's book remains one of the most comprehensive
	accounts available, though later research casts doubt on some
	of her conclusions.

Title:		The Great Hunger
Author:		Cecil Woodham-Smith
Publisher:	Penguin
ISBN:		0 14 014515 X

I'm looking for information regarding navigable waterways for a 44' fly bridge cruiser for corporate entertainment such as the big horse racing events. I've searched the internet and book stores here in Walws without success.
