In my A-Z of things to see in Ireland I have gotten round to one of the darkest parts of Irish History, the Great Hunger of 1845-1847. However, there were other crop failures over the following ten years which accounted for over one million Irish emigrating and at least as many perishing. When we come to Q it refers to Quaker Pots or Famine Pots.
The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) has long had a testimony to peace and social justice, dating back to the time of King Charles II. Quakers have earned a special footnote in Irish history due to their response to the greatest man made disaster that has affected Ireland.
