Be Anglican, have Anglo last name.
Learn to fish. God the Irish are so fucking retarded
You're all morons. I've seen this parroted so many fucking times.
>Duhh you're never more than a days walk from the sea anywhere in Ireland
Except you literally are retard - a fucking months walk in many cases. Good luck doing that while starving to death.
oh it's so easy anons, 5 million starving emaciated people should all just abandon their homes/what little welfare they have and walk to the seaside to fish. That's how you fix a famine! Simples! I'll choose to believe trolls and just laugh, because nobody with even a fleeting interest in history could truly be this stupid.
Why didn't they just run.
>retarded paddy can't tie a string to a stick and wait
No wonder they starved.
Where do you get your fishing equipment?
You can make fishing equipment out of sticks and shrubbery.
Paddle to the other Ireland off the west coast of Ireland
Get together, kill the english and steal their stuff.
How'd I do?
Literally just fish.
Join the British Army
>How do you survive/escape LULZ?
Try to get deported to Australia.
try to ride a dolphin to safety
survive off potatoes
But there are no potatoes, Anon.
Pretty well, I think. Didn't they scream out
>DEATH TO THE LANDLORDS!!!
Did they succeed?
Prayer and alms?
First of all, I would have gone fishing :^)
Start vertical farming
i'd just cannabalise paddies and rape their wives
acquire a fishing rod
The British forced the Irish to live off potatoes, they took most of the good land for themselves and used it to raise cattle for export to England. The native Irish tenants were left with tiny plots of often the poorest land with which to sustain their families and the only crop which would consistently provide a good enough yield was the potato.
If anything they were too merciful.
Move like most Irish with a triple digit IQ or the slightest bit of work ethic did.
Literally just catch some fish. Newfoundland faced the exact same situation, during the exact same period, and the exact same blight with the exact same people (half of the island had emigrated from Ireland recently) involved, and they solved it by catching some cod and seal.
I’ve seen all manner of stupid excuses about this too:
>The Irish sea is too rough!
Wreckhouse, Newfoundland gets over 200 km galeforce winds. Shut up baby.
>The Irish were too poor to fish!
Newfoundlanders were poorer still
>They didn’t have the means to build proper sea-faring ships. The curragh is too frail!
Newfoundlanders rowed out to sea in smaller, one-man crafts called punts and fished no matter the weather. They also brought in bigger ships from further away (New England) for deep sea fishing. Whereas the Irish had the biggest shipyards in the world next door in England, and couldn’t be bothered.
>The cliffs of Southern Ireland are too high! No ports or coves!
Newfoundland makes Ireland look flat, and still they made it work.
>it was too remote to get to market!
Newfoundlanders were so remote and isolated it took months by foot or weeks by ship to travel anywhere just on the island.
I can only conclude that mealy-mouthed idiots were all that was left behind in Ireland at the time. This is confirmed by Irish fishermen selling their boats and gear for corn, and the Irish starving was a much needed Darwinian kick in the ass, since fish became a staple of the Irish diet afterwards.
>Population of Newfoundland, 1845: 96,295
>Population of Ireland, 1845: 8,500,000
Newfoundland had the Grand Banks fishery, perhaps the highest concentration of fish in the world at the time (and certainly in the North Atlantic) and the fishing industry drove its history from its initial settlement.
>t. pissed off Newfie
your accents are retarded and nobody can understand you tube talking pricks
Jump off the cliffs of Moher
Convert to protestant and be fed by the church of Ireland
I walk up to a lawman and tell him I’m not Irish and I need to get home to the United States. This was the 1840s, not the 1640s.
The fuck do you think they're going to do? Send you back with a kiss and a note?
They’re going to point me in the direction I need to, my modernist friend.
Only one thing I can do anon.
I just fish for food. Easy.
catch some fish
The Anglo-Saxon warrior was far too kind to the natives of these wretched isles. Should have just cleansed them and conquered the whole thing.
Realistically, Ireland would have had to very rapidly create an industrialised fishing industry to feed the 8.5+million people living in Ireland at that time. They were simply not in a position to do this.
the Irish had large fishing fleets for centuries before Cromwell
but frankly, the very idea that you could replace staples like bread and potatoes for millions by sending out a few more boats is preposterous and the only reason you hear anything about it is the fact the whelps who dominate discussion on this board don't spend more than two seconds thinking about something before they are certain they know it all
>dude the famine was a genocide
>which is why instead of just sending in troops to massacre villages they instead chose a convoluted method that didn't even result in irelands population being wiped out
did I say it was genocide?
no. I only explain that the Irish catholics were not allowed to fish legally.
also you forget that the British were nominally Christian at this time and Christians generally frown on killing women and children with bullets and clubs.
but if they only starved to death because it's their own fault for being papists anyways there's no backlash.
>the Irish catholics were not allowed to fish legally
No wonder you retards destroyed New England. You follow laws to the point of death. The absolute state of you.
maybe when the food shortages begin in earnest you will begin to understand how
the penal code at that time and place was intense to say the least
how would christian europe react to a famine vs troop slaughter?
Like dude just fish lmao..it's not that hard bro
Why didn't they go to France or Spain?
