Storyboard Text

  • The Spanish bring back the potato from America. 
  • The potato then makes its way to Europe and to Ireland. 
  • The potato has most of the vitamins you need to survive so the Irish lived entirely on potatoes but then one day there became a potato disease and killed all the potato crops. 
  • People began to have no food and started to go hungry as they had no other source of food.
  • Many people were forced by hunger to leave Ireland in search of food they had to travel in boats so it was very dangerous and many boats sunk.
  • The people of Ireland travelled to America to start a new life and in search of food, it was very difficult for them because they knew that they would not be able to return to Ireland.
