Irish leaders entered the picture when the 1847 Poor Laws backfired, leading landowners to mass-evict their starving tenants. Daniel O'Connell tried to maintain an alliance with the Whigs, and failed. The Young Irelanders split off from the Repeal Association, and as a result, both the rebellious and the moderate minds of the country lost significant traction, unable to fight the famine alone.

By the time that the first healthy harvest arrived in 1849, a million people had died due to prejudiced men writing bad policy-a stark warning of what happens when poor relief becomes a tool of political ideology. But in a world where 1 in 8 people are malnourished, the Republic of Ireland today has turned its deepest psychological scar into a call to action.

+Thomas Richardson you can pay in Euro and your bank will deduct from your account an amount in dollars equivalent to the Euros you've paid (plus some commission for the exchange). One Euro is worth slightly more than one dollar, so unless you're looking to be really precise with your accounting, just pick an amount that you'd be comfortable paying in Dollars and pay that in Euro. (e.g. if you would have happily paid twenty bucks, put in €20, and it will probably be ~$22-23)

I find your characterisation of Ireland as a world leader in foreign food/development aid....strange. They give 0.45% of GDP in aid, winch is just over the minimum legal requirement of the EU of 0.42%. For comparison the UK gives 0.72% of GDP which amounts to about 20x the amount of money Ireland gives. In terms of %GDP, the "world leaders" are the Scandinavian countries, all giving over 1% of their GDP to foreign aid. Ireland doesn't even rank in the top 10 for either measurement. So why may I ask, is this the characterisation you give? Because honestly, it's flat out wrong.

Finally the Ottomans get mentioned here as helping out the Irish. Sultan Abdulmecid I had heard about it from his Irish doctor, and sent aid accordingly. Even though the British tried to restrict most of it, the ships still secretly delivered the extra supplies.

Ireland is a lovely country and are lovely people, I visited some years ago, glad to see you mentioned how Mexico helped with aid, here in Mexico we remember the Saint Patrick's Battalion, which changed sides to support Mexico in the Mexican-American war, and their descents are still living here, I wish we had had more Irish immigration here!

The story of the Ottoman help is kinda a interesting story: A Irish man sneaks into a random trade ship and cames to Konstantiniyye, when he learn where he is he start telling people the story of the famine. Many people don't believes him actually majorty of the people doesn't understands him, they even don't know what or where Ireland is. One day this Irish man comes into the Topkapı Palace (Residence of the Sultan) he tries to enter but Guards not allows him. He tries to tell his story but as usually Guards doesn't understand him. Everyday he tries to enter the palace so he can talk with the Sultan and ask for help but everyday he get caught and finally they arrest him and throw him to the jail in Topkapı Palace. A Pasha hears this and goes to talk with him, he talks with the Irıish guy and hears the story. He couldn't believe what the Irish man said and when he learned Irish wants to talk with Sultan, Pasha agrees and goes to talk with the Grand Vizier. And Grand Vizier tell this to the Sultan Abdülmecid I. Sultan quickly calls the Irish man to his court and when Guards brought the Irish guy to him he gets sad to his condition. Irish guy tells the horrible story of his country for hours, he explains how he came to Konstantiniyye. Abdülmecid quickly order his Vizier to prepare the largest ship in the Ottoman Navy to transport help to Ireland. In same time he sends latter to the Queen Victoria, in that time Ally of the Ottoman Empire. He offers to send 10.000 gold to the Irish people but Queen Victoria only allows 2000. With 2000 gold, beside the Sultan's help also people of Konstantiniyye donate their foods,drinks,fruits etc. and thosa load into the ship then ship set sails to the Ireland... This is the story i heard i don't know how much of these true but it's still proud thing to see my ancestors helped people in need...It's still making me sad Europeans calling we Turks barbarians.

Needs to be remembered that Queen Victoria tried to limit the aid that the Ottoman sultan was sending, because it made her look bad if she wasn't sending as much aid as a foreign power. i.e. it was legit a genocide

If you get a chance, look up the Irish Famine Memorial in Dublin. Of all the memorials I have seen in my life, it is certainly one of the most impactful. However, I think that such a somber testament to famine is necessary. If we don't remember our past, we will surely repeat it.
