    i also wish you expanded on the 'potato famine' because we all know (we as in anyone who reads objective history) it wasnt a 'famine' but rather the english raping irish land and saying 'fock em'.

      Not exactly, Nordic people, Southern Asians, people from the Roman Empire.

  • evansdrad The celtic nationalist

    The celts aren't first natives in Eire. Vascons closely related to Basque were here before us. And neanderthals before them. DNA evidence proves many Irishmen to have either or and or both. Mostly vasconic.

    The blasting of the Brits, especially the English, is insane here... Yes, they've done many horrid things, but think of the amazing things that have been accomplished by Brits (and of course many others)! The theory of evolution by Darwin, Newton's conception of gravity, the submarine, wealth of nations, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Hume's empiricism, Locke, Hobbes, the bike, so many medicines and other various forms of technology, keynesian economics, Lord of the Rings, and so many other wonderful things. Perhaps it is time to no longer blame others but try to move forward towards a solution for folks. We can point fingers endlessly- Brits, French, Belgian, Americans, Chinese, Liberians, Japanese, Russians, hell, even the Mongolians! But what does that really accomplish? Understanding history is important- to blame every problem on various forms of oppression does little to help those in need.

    The Potato Famine was not about rotten Potatos but the English took all meat and vegetables from Irish people and left them with mostly potatoes to eat hence Potato famine

    • Sir Borkington
      Sir Borkington Month ago

      Well the Irish relied a lot on taters, they didn't have the most diverse crop cultivation back then, so when the taters went nasty it hit harder than it would likely have other countries. Plus other factors of course.

    The famine was just an excuse for the Crown to let the Irish catholics starve. There was a potato blight but the Crown stopped the Irish people from eating. Secretly corn was purchased from America to feed the Irish and when the Crown became aware they didn't let the Irish have it.

    • Peter Fitzgerald
      Peter Fitzgerald 3 days ago

      @Christopher O Donoghue Sure Chris, the European Union started out as a common trade group, now it controls our law, our environment, our money, our emigration and just about everything else, it pro actively invades Europe with millions of migrants without any kind of checks whatsoever. Even though countries like ours, Holland, Denmark and others voted against different EU treaties, we were made vote again.
      The salaries these M.E.P.s are on are scandalous, and just look at the way they punish the British for choosing to leave. The top people in the E.U. are all elected by themselves with no transparency, I could go on all day, but if you are asking this question it means either one of two things, one, your as thick as a plank or two your so brain washed and bias like most of Irish people, you cannot see.

      There could likely be two celtic migrations to the isles. The continuous gallic migration and the celtiberians migration. Hell there could be more than one.

    Please explain your use of the word 'inattention' and the context please?
    Everything bar a few trinkets was destroyed or stolen from Ireland.
    Let me explain something I stumbled across recently. My friends father died. He came from Elphin in roscommon. When you come from a land rich in oral lore one cannot simply pass that name out without digging(elf inn) . Turns out it was the spiritual epicentre of Europe.
    Fionn mc Cumhaill was said to have thrown an obelisk which landed in Elphin. There it stood for millenia until one day it allegedly fell over. Because the Irish have no interest in the past the authorities simply came and removed it and put a well in its place. Where is it?
    Elphin itself is relatively unknown to Irish people today.
    The descendents of our ancestors are still here and we are are relearning our skill sets.
    The Queen sits on a stone robbed from here but that's OK. Lot of red heads in that family!! 😉☀️🎼

    I have lived in Northern Ireland my whole life, my mother is English and my father is from Waterford in the south. I honestly don't mind either way what happens to the border as long as it's not shut & i can understand both points of view, but it seems to me it would cause as much grief as it would stop to re-unify, maybe i'm just being pessimistic but believe me when i say you have to live here to appreciate what i'm saying, love to all though!
