  • Irish Potato Famine Story ——John Song
  • Irish? Who cares about them?
  • Your Majesty. According to what my team and I found there is going to be a potato disease caused by a kind of Oomycota called Phytophthora infestans on coming. Potato is Irish main food resource. Irish will meet a potato famine. We’d better do something about that.
  • Oh, that's ok. It's not happened yet.
  • Oh Nooooooooooooo! These potatoes get disease, they can no more be eaten. We have no food!!
  • This disaster caused one million Irish died of starving.
  • Another one million people choose to immigrate another part of the world like U.S. and Australia. A lot of people died on the journey, therefore, these ships were called coffin ship.
  • Britain was the most developed country in the world. They were having the world first EXPO.However, the queen Victoria only donated 2000 pounds to Ireland. It was very hard to require aid from England. The corns on the first victualling vessel were even inedible.
  • Other parts of the world, helped Irish people a lot. A lot of countries provided a green channel for immigrants. Sultan Abdülmecid I of Ottoman Empire announced he would donate 10,000 pounds to Ireland, however, the Queen Victoria asked him only donated 1,000. He still sent three victualling vessels to Ireland. Even the Choctaw Indian tribe donated 710 dollars.
