The chief cause of the Famine in 1846 and 1847 was the failure of the potato crop. The potato was the principal food of the people in those years so that when the crop failed they were faced with starvation. The people were forced to eat black potatoes. Hundreds died from cholera. The old people said they died by the roadside.
