  • thank god for potato or we wouldn't survive 
  • the potato ! its all ruined 
  • how will we survive now 
  • Although there are many speculations to how the potato came to be in Ireland , many have speculated that it had washed up to shore from the shipwreck of the Spanish armada , which had sunken off the Irish coast in a violent storm .

  • In 1845 the worst possible thing had hit them . A potato famine caused by a unknown diseased which had lead to half the potatoes  grown that year to be completely destroyed . The diseases resulted in the potatoes to going black ,  rotten , and causing the leaves of the crop to wither 
  • i wonder what happened to my family . I hope they survived

  • some have estimate that around 5000,00 - 1,100000 had died during  the famine .  Many Irish citizens had decided to migrate by boat to other country's  in hope for better conditions 
  • But not many had survived the ride and so these boats had been dubbed the 'coffin ships' . The conditions had been horrible due to the contaminated areas and the crowd on each transport . 
  • But for the ones who had survived had been joyed they had made it alive and into the new land . although most had sorrow for they had known once they left they would most likely never return to their homeland or see there familys again .
