The Potato Famine
BY: Yahya Hamdallah
Part 1- So Why
The Potato Famine Started in 1845-1849. All this happened by a huge mist of black smoke that had made the potatoes bad to eat and grow!
Part 2- What Affect Did This Have
This affected the Irish because they werent the richest country in Europe, so they lived on potatoes. They would eat potatoes for breakfast, snack, lunch, and dinner. But whos complaning!
Part 3- So What Happnend Next
British thoght it was a miracle
And then they had to do something so they sent over Charles Trevelyan.
Well, Charles Trevelyan said that the British can help if they make plantations that the Irish can live on. But that's not what happened? The plantations did not go as plan. The British took it a diffrent way. They forced the british to pay for thier own homes and build them thier self while they lived in mansion on the hill.
So What Happened After That?
Well that's on the other page. Stay Tuned for Bloody Sunday!
