The Great Famine
The year of 1845 changed the history of Ireland forever. The weather was good so people were expecting a good potato crop that year. What they didn’t know was that a new form of potato disease had been brought into Europe.
The disease first appeared in America two years earlier, then it arrived via cargo ships into France and finally reached the Isle of Wight and Ireland. It turned potatoes into a black, rotten mess, which nobody could eat. More than half of the year’s crop was destroyed.
Irish people depended on potatoes for their survival. Most people owned very small areas of land, and they grew potatoes instead of grain because a farmer could produce three times as much food on the same plot of land. A single acre of potatoes produced enough food for a family for a year. Each family grew only what they needed as they didn’t have anywhere to store potatoes over the winter.
There was famine all over the country. People went hungry without any food to eat for days. Then in 1846, the potato crop was devastated once again. The harvest in 1847 was also very poor. Three years without potatoes led to enormous problems for Ireland.
The British government, which ruled Ireland at the time, first did very little to help the people in need. In fact, during the crisis, British landlords continued exporting food from the country simply because they could get a better price abroad. Finally, in 1847 the government decided to do something about Ireland. They set up soup kitchens to give free food to people who needed it the most. They also started work programmes to help people make money so they could buy food for their families. But it was too little, too late.
Between 1845 and 1855, more than 700,000 Irish people died. After the famine, an estimated 2 million people left the country. Some people started new lives in Britain’s industrial cities, for example Glasgow, London and Liverpool. Others went to the USA. The population of Ireland dropped by more than a quarter.
The Great Famine, as they called the hunger crisis, transformed Irish culture and had a big effect on the Gaelic language. The crisis was worst in the west of Ireland, where most Gaelic speakers lived. Families who decided to emigrate no longer had any use for Gaelic in their new countries, and future generations of Irish immigrants didn’t learn the language at all. Today only a small minority of Irish people speak Gaelic as their first language.
But many historians believe it was also the Great Famine that led to the nationalist movements which finally brought about Ireland’s independence from Britain in 1921.

new year - a terrific holiday!   all decorated and everywhere flames, the house in the middle of the room grows prickly tree.  people in the new year become kinder and happier.everyone is busy with preparations for the celebration.  looking for decorations for christmas trees, the very tree, presents under the christmas tree.  children write letters to santa claus and anxiously waiting for the holiday.i like this winter festival is much more than a summer's day of birth.  because all my friends happy, and we give gifts to each other, and walk together on the tree.  this year we had three trees in the school and two more we arranged themselves, their family.  and that's not counting the very new year's evening!   i liked absolutely all trees.  each memorable in its own way.  the theater was a wonderful spectacle, a movie we watched the new year's fairy tale, high school students in the school gave us a jolly holiday with sweet gifts.  the most exciting time in the new year is by its own parish.  well, i have not allowed to sleep until twelve at night.  true, the previous two times, my brother fell asleep, but this year it worked out!   it was so solemn.  on television, the spassky tower began to beat the clock, we all stood up and congratulated each other on new year and all kissed.  then cut a big cake and ate a piece.  the street was very nice, the whole city roared salutes firecrackers and fireworks.  we went outside and burned 10 of bengal candles.  on the morning under the tree were gifts.  santa claus again outsmarted us and bring them when we were asleep.  but we were a younger brother tried so hard to watch for it! but my mother said that he and the magician, that no one appears, and all other clauses dressed.  then i asked my mother what she believes in what you do not see it.  she said that the air we also do not see, but it does not mean that it is not.  it is a pity after all that we have not seen this santa claus.  let's try another time.happy new year!
