An exhibition on a Polish hero during the Great Irish Famine has opened at Westport library.
Paul Strzelecki, who was a Polish explorer and scientist, volunteered to work in Ireland during the Famine as a part of the British Relief Association from 1847 to 1849.
The exhibition entitled 'Paul Strzelecki's Struggle to Save Thousands' will run until late December. It's free of charge and will be open during library hours which are Tuesday to Saturday from 10am until 5pm.
Barbara Varley is an executive librarian at Ballina library and she has been telling Midwest Radio's Alannah Nolan more about the exhibition...
