The Irish Genocide 1845-52

Asenath Nicholson: “They walk fearlessly upon dangerous precipices and even descend to the sea in search of eggs, which the seagulls deposit there in the sides of the cliffs. Two men were dashed from a fearful height and dreadfully mangled, one was killed instantly, and the other lingered a few week s and died.” Taken from The Truth Behind The Irish Famine, 72 images, 400 eyewitness quotes
