Death by Starvation – 3

Part 3                                        Irish Hunger Martyrs


See Cardinal Cullen’s Pastoral Letter on Proselytism. He mentions the slow MARTYRDOM suffered by the victims. { p. 425 }.

The hunger victims were offered food if they renounced their Catholic Faith. There were Religious Missions sent over from England to convert the starving Catholics. They refused the bribe and suffered starvation and death for their Catholic Faith. They also had to watch their children go through a slow starvation process in a daily state of agony.

Subjects : Proselytism at various locations in Ireland, Conditions in Co. Clare.

  1. It is hard to believe that today in Ireland there is ignorance and lack of courage to bring the past in focus and relate the tragedy to todays starvation & hunger in the world. In order to go forward, you must go back.

  2. Great source data. Thank you Mike McCormack


  3. Clearly the result of a lot of tedious work. Great dedication to exposing the truths of this Government assisted tragedy.
