In the year 1848, and 1849, the famine came to Ireland. Up to that time the Irish people had plenty of food. They had potatoes in abundance, plenty of pork, pickled beef, and ground their own corn at home so that each family was comfortably fixed. As usual in 1847, in the months of Febuary and March each farmer set there own big garden of potatoes, but unfortunately the potato crop failed. The people started then to eat the turnips and they had not even enough of them. The people grew sick and got all kinds of deseases including Cholera.

Coffins could not be precured, so the bodies were taken in heaps to the churches
