This storyboard does not have a description.
Irish where forced to emigrate due to a disease that attacked their main food source which caused severe food shortage.
They came from central Europe
Irish went to settle in the port cities. They had basically nothing, not even a little savings they had (like money).
Irish came poor and a lot of people didn't like the Irish. So no one wanted anyone who was Irish to apply for a well-paying job. Instead, they worked low-paying jobs.
Some Irish women would wash or work as servants and the men would build canals and railroads.
The Irish had to compete with free blacks for jobs that no one else wanted. Irish came to American to get a better living. And this is what they get.
No one liked the Irish and they weren't allowed to vote or go to school. Britain had controlled the majority of Ireland and defying their rights.
