The New Irish Potato Famine

Things are so cold, wet and damp, so the potatoes that are in the ground don’t want to grow,” says Limavady potato farmer. “There’s no growth at all.”

Potato farmer James Wray claims that there are “no potatoes left in Northern Ireland.”

    The great Irish exodus is happening again. Thousands of Irish have come to Australia and Perth to escape the potato famine, and the fact there’s no jobs due to Goldman Sachs and the EU. They liven the place up!!!

  2. Memories of the Irish Famine of 1741, or Year of Slaughter.It was reckoned to be as bad as 1848.

    Unlike the famine of the 1840s, which was caused in part by a fungal infection in the potato crop and, separately, extreme government regulations, that of 1740–41 was due to extremely cold and then rainy weather in successive years, resulting in a series of poor harvests.
