Ireland 1845–52 | Where 1.5 Million Died

Thomas Gallagher: “A young man named Stephen Regan in Kenmare, Co Kerry one day met a dog dragging along a child’s head. After a struggle he took the head from the dog, buried it and set a heavy rock over it. The family to whom the child belonged was getting outdoor relief for the child and for that reason did not report its death.” Taken from The Truth Behind The Irish Famine, 72 paintings, 472 eyewitness quotes, signed copies at #ireland #history
