The Blight and the Blarney
Ireland has suffered from potato blight since 1845. Friends and neighbours have died, been evicted or given up what little land they have in search of alms. Michael Flynn is one of the lucky ones. His landlord has offered support.
Michael and his family have done all they can to help their immediate household, but as the famine and its aftermath continue, have their efforts been enough?
With the weakening brought about by hunger, there are some things he is powerless to protect his family from. Is it time for the great Michael Flynn to take his family in search of a better life?
