Bringing hope to the hopeless

There is a new film now showing in Ireland titled, Black ’47. It is a story set in the year 1847 when Ireland was under British occupation and a devastating famine hit the poor of Ireland when their staple food, the potato, was attacked by a fungus and rotted in the ground. Approximately one million Irish people died of starvation and another million migrated to America and helped to build that country.
