The famine had a disastrous effect all over Ireland and with the failure of the then British rulers to help with the food shortage and the exporting of grain to pay landlords their rent Ireland became practically unlivable which was the main reason for Irish immigration in the 1800’s. The famine left over a million people dead of starvation and others who survived with diseases such as cholera and typhus. Making them flee to the United States and Canada as well, as the living conditions were harsh in Ireland, the ship they traveled in to America was poorly as well, it was know as the “Coffin Ship”.

Ireland was among one of the poorest nations in the world during this time, the residents relied heavily on eating potatoes on a daily basis. A family of six could grow enough potatoes on one acre of land in one planting season to survive for one year, in fact they would have so many potatoes, up to twelve tons, there was enough left over to feed the farm animals. The potato famine started in September 1845 when farmers noticed the potato plant leaves turned black, curled up, and then rotted. This was caused by an airborne fungus called phytophthora infestans that was transported from North America to England on ships. This fungus traveled from England to Ireland in the wind and landed on potato plants where it grew and spread across the countryside destroying potatoes plants along the way.
One of America's most eaten snack foods is the potato chip. This copious snack food is also commonly called a crisp in the United Kingdom and Ireland. In the United Kingdom they refer to french fries as chips. This widely known thin slice of potato that is deep fried or baked till crunchy made $16.49 billion in revenue in 2005 and makes most people wish they could have started a potato chip company. The United States potato chip industry employs around 60,000 people.
This meant trade to other countries went down bringing the economy to yet another low and this lack of agricultural workers meant a lack of food across Russia, especially in towns and cities where there was no easy access to farms; and as is with most things in demand, the prices went through the roof, leaving peasants starving on a mass scale. The only short term fix that was established for this whole issue, was a series of loans from Russia’s allies, Britain and France; these loans are especially important when it comes to the provisional government’s role in the second revolution in 1917. The other major issue that was gained from the World War is the amazing show of incompetence from Russian military leaders, most notably Nicholas II. This led to a decreasing
We are running out of vegetable supplies because of the high amount of people we have living in this community and these numbers are increasing each year. Due to the high number of consumers we have in this community the price of vegetables has increased by 35% in two years and so a lot of people cant afford to buy them. By growing a community garden we are solving these problems and using up the empty area's. People can share the vegetables which will force the industry to lower the price of fresh vegetables. Also by doing this there will be enough food for the whole community to eat and share.
“Throughout the Famine years, nearly a million Irish arrived in the United States. Famine immigrants were the first big wave of poor refugees ever to arrive in the U.S. and Americans were overwhelmed.” (The History Place 5) The Irish Potato Famine began in September 1845, the potato plants turned black and rotted as a result of an airborne fungus called phytophthora infestans. Because this fungus is highly toxic, thousands of potato plants can become infected from just one plant that has the fungus. During the summer of 1846, the weather was working against the people of Ireland. The cool moist summer spread the fungus to even more potato plants.
The Black Death It was a devastating and sad time during 1348 to 1350 because and outbreak of a disease of plague cause by bacterium. Europe and the Islamic world lost 30% to 50% of their population. Plague is a disease that is cause by enterobacteria Yersinis pestis, and it was named after the French Swiss bacteriologist Alexandre Yersin. As stated in my reading the modern people knew the disease was infectious, but they did not know how it spread. And it was no effective treatments for it.

They took their land and settled English Soldiers on plantations, the largest of which was in Ulster. Another long-term cause of the Easter Rising was the Great Potato Famine in 1845.
