‘From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade’
The then stated policy of the English Govt. in the period 1620 onwards was to exterminate all Irish, and to this end there were incursions, mass slaughter and then rounding up and selling of Irish men women and children as slaves to be sold in Virginia and East Indies, wherever tobacco was grown.
