The Sandman BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys (133* d) RE: BBC Radio4 - Morpurgo's Folk Journeys 08 Jan 21

One speaker refers twice to people leaving Ireland in the 19th century to migrate to "the UK". Worse: that speaker sounds Irish himself. How can he not know that Ireland was part of the UK at that time?
quote richard mellish
you are missing the point entirely, richard, what the speaker is meaning, is that people had to leave ireland to emigrate , to what is now called the uk, they had to emigrate for several reasons, primarily
the british government., through political policies forced them to leave
