  • The Irish Potato Famine - a Prince Edward Island (Canada) Dept of Agriculture and Forestry site that discusses the famine as part of the story of the potato. While the potato was just the last in a long line of factors causing the Famine, it is nonetheless interesting to read why it was a staple food in Ireland.

  • The Delaney Family Coat of Arms - here's a scan of the commonly-seen 'Delaney coat of arms'. What makes me wonder is: after reading all about the trials and tribulations that the Irish went through at the hands of the English to keep them poor and downtrodden, how did they end up with a coat of arms, the very sign of nobility?? Couldn't even afford the coat let alone the arms. This 'coat of arms' was bought back by a relative of mine from a trip to Ireland. I also remember my father was able to buy a tie with the deer's head crest on it.
