The Irish Empire: Keeping the Faith

The Irish Empire: Keeping the Faith

Director: David Roberts Cast: Fiona Shaw



This video is volume four in a five-part series that examines the fate of the Irish who left their homeland for other points in the world. The Irish potato famine of 1856-1860 caused many subsistence farmers to lose their livelihood and their land. A million people died and many more migrated in search of a better world. This segment looks at the role that religion played in the lives of the Irish migrants. Faith, stability, inspiration, and persecution are some of the issues examined. Archival photographs and film footage, along with personal accounts and interviews, tell the story. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter
