"Source or sources, "
It seem as far as the facts and figurs are concerned, I owe you an apology
I haven't read the book he quotes - I did read a favourable review in a usually reliable Cork paper
The criticism was on whether what undoubtedly took place could be construed as 'slavery' - it was certainly bad treatment
That treatment persisted towards the Irish peasantry persisted from the Plantations - through Cromwell and into up to the point when the Land League moved in to stop the forced evictions
The Perid fllowing the Famine was worse than slavery, in fact, with eveicted tenants forced to dig holes in the ground to stay alive until they could get to the coffin ships
