This looks great, honey!
Glad you think so!
In Ireland around the 1840s, everything seemed great. everyone was healthy and boy did they love their potatoes. But it did not last...
How are you guys doing?
Looks great, go put it with the others, my boy!
I can't wait to eat this!
How does it look, Pop?
There is a rumor that the potatoes are failing due to a fungus.
I don't feel so good!
The potatoes have carried a fungus called, potato blight. Leading to devastating impacts on the Irish.
something is not settling in my stomach, dear!
What is he taking about?
should we be touching these potatoes?
What is wrong with the potatoes?
If this is country spread, what are we going to do?
Many people became very sick and ill or even worse , have died due to the infected potatoes.
Anywhere better than here.
Children, pack your things.
where will we go? Ireland is all we know!
Many people had doubts if they should stay in Ireland or if they should go find somewhere else to live.
There will be plenty of job opportunities, Rookie!
where are you fellas planning to go?
Some place that will be good for growing me crops. Maybe Canada.
All of those poor people in those poor living conditions. What are going to do?
Facing the threat of starvation, many Irish decided to move to other countries , like Canada. Due to the deaths and immigration happening, Ireland 's population went down.
Just like I remembered it!
Aren't we already doing that?
Many of the Irish who immigrated, went back to their old habits and even better, found job opportunities, better living conditions, and of course POTATOES !
Give me a break!
Are you sure these potatoes are poison?
Looks good to me.
