Famine Times and Moving From Ireland to the U.S. (Ep. 62) [Re-run]

Even if many Irishmen don’t really like their country to be remembered because of this historical event, we should acknowledge it as one of the biggest events in the history of the human race, not just Ireland’s history.

Yes, we’re talking about The Great Irish Famine and how this event affected millions of people from all over the World.

If you were going to search our blog, you’d see we’ve mentioned the Famine Times a few times in our articles, but did you know we’ve also done podcast episodes about it? In this rebroadcast of the Bitesize Irish Gaelic podcast 62nd episode, we’re talking to Minnesota-based author Rachel Britz who researched The Great Irish Famine for her book “Good-bye, Lover“.

Her family originated from Donegal and moved shortly after the Famine Times to the United States of America, sadly with the loss of some family members. Rachel came back to Ireland in 2014 and told us a little about her trip here.

In this re-run of the Bitesize podcast, episode 62nd, in the English language, you can learn more about The Great Irish Famine, County Donegal and the Cliffs of Moher.
