    Irish leaders entered the picture when the 1847 Poor Laws backfired, leading landowners to mass-evict their starving tenants. Daniel O'Connell tried to maintain an alliance with the Whigs, and failed. The Young Irelanders split off from the Repeal Association, and as a result, both the rebellious and the moderate minds of the country lost significant traction, unable to fight the famine alone.

By the time that the first healthy harvest arrived in 1849, a million people had died due to prejudiced men writing bad policy—a stark warning of what happens when poor relief becomes a tool of political ideology. But in a world where 1 in 8 people are malnourished, the Republic of Ireland today has turned its deepest psychological scar into a call to action.

God knew the world needed strong people to build nations. The famine caused the spread of Irish culture across the world. With strong shoulders, the Irish helped build nations. America owes the Irish a debt of gradititude. With thier help, America had more strong people to build this country. Thank you Ireland for coming to America and helping to make my country great and diverse! 🇺🇸 🇮🇪

Man...Ireland, a country ravaged over the years, using their crisis as a call to action, not only to everyone, but, themselves, ensuring that no one else, has to go what they had to go to, by donating to people around the world and providing aid, man, Why can’t Ireland be In charge of the UK?

There were way, way more revolutions in 1848, the Year of Revolutions. It's the most glorious year of people fighting for democracy and liberty in Europe. 1848 deserves its own video series.

Very informative but history cannot be properly related if you always shy away from controversial subject matter. Instead of jumping forward 170 years to today and a "they all lived happily ever after" ending, why not explain that mass Irish immigration to North America, particularly the slums of Boston and New York, and to the coal mines of Pennsylvania, led to the formation of Irish Catholic political organisations determined to liberate their homeland by any means necessary from their British masters such as the Molly Maguires and the Irish Republican Brotherhood; that, particularly from the 1870s onward, many returned to Ireland in order to pursue this end and to organise the armed struggle in situ; and that this would eventually lead to the formation of the Irish Republican Army, the Easter Rising of 1916, and the Irish War of Independence (1919-21). All this was a direct consequence of British misrule, particularly during the potato famine. It cast such a long shadow that the consequences, in Ulster especially, are still being felt today in incidents such as the killing of a journalist in Derry by the New IRA only last weekend.

You'll never forget what it's like to be hungry and helpless, or being a victim of those who look down on you. And you'll never stop wanting to help others so that they don't meet the same fate. I'm not even irish and yet I'm still proud of all the lads.
