During the years of the famine the potatoes rotted in the ground. The people had nothing else to eat and when this failed they died here and there on roads and in fields. Some lived a long time on a root they used to dig out of the ground. There were no coffins but on the people that died. They had a box with hinches on the bottom and when they would come to the grave they used to open the bottom and let the person drop into the grave. In that way the one coffin did all the people.
