A Look back, of the Dark Days, of Irelands History?

Posted by


A Hedge school pre-famine, during the Penal Laws when it was illegal for Catholics to receive an education. “The children were educated in a secret location, one child always kept lookout each time from soldiers. The little schoolchildren sat wrapped as well as possible in their tatters on the ground. Each child had brought a piece of turf with him as tribute and fee for the teacher.” From The Truth Behind The Irish Famine. 72 images, 472 eyewitness quotes: www.jerrymulvihill.com
