Tell me about the great potato famine?


1 Answer

Great Famine, also called Irish Potato Famine, Great Irish Famine, that occurred in Ireland in 1845–49 when the potato crop failed in successive years. The crop failures were caused by late blight, a disease that destroys both the leaves and the edible roots, or tubers, of the potato plant.
