Friends of Ireland!

Please take the time to consider supporting this very important petition.

Irish Holocaust – Not Famine. The Push to educate in facts.​

We can now prove beyond doubt that more food than was required to feed the Irish people during the period (1845-1850), was exported out of Irish ports under armed guard.

This is not a petition of Acrimony, Discord or Hate, this is a petition for Truth!

Please sign with your family, and ask your friends and their families to consider.

In Proud and Loving memory of our Forefathers, and the Truth that our Children Deserve.
