THE IRISH HOLOCAUST- (Irish: an Gorta Mór) or the Great Hunger was a period of mass starvation, disease and emigration in Ireland between 1845 and 1852
According to historian Chris Fogarty,
the “Irish Potato Famine” which killed over five million people
was not a famine but a deliberate British policy of starvation similar to the
Holomodor in the Ukraine in 1932-33.
“The truth is startling, 67 out of 130 regiments of Britain’s Empire army were in Ireland in this period (100,000 at any one time). The troops were not on a humanitarian mission. Their job was to remove food by force”
