    I believe there might be an error in this article. The Easter Rising and the Irish War of Independence were in the early 20st century, correct?

    I think its a laudable decision to teach Irish History in American schools. However I beg you to get it right. What has commonly been referred to as the famine was actually the British Empire trying desperately to ‘solve’ the Irish question! It was attempted genocide. No better or worse than the Germans attempt with the Jews. The only difference was thar we had to farm and watxh the proceeds shipped to England while we starved! Men who tried to stewl a bit of corn or wheat were caught and sent to the colonies! They had ro leave helpless starving wives ans children behind forever exiled and hopeless! If you do , and i hope it will be the case, tea h irish history please don’t ever let that terrible time be referred to as the famine….The Great Hunger, Genocide. …either one is appropriate. Thank you.
