    Default Irish Slavery

    A forgotten History and shame on the World

    http://yournewswire.com/almost-one-m...-from-history/

    Opening Paragraph




    They came in the holds of overcrowded ships, packed in among cargo and animals, and those who survived the journey were bought and sold in chains to work as hard as their owners chose. They were taken to the Carribean, to the American colonies, and beyond. Sound familiar? But these forced immigrants, deprived of all personal freedom, were Irish slaves, and their servitude started long before black slavery was common.

    We have evolved to get to where we are but the genetic code dreams remain to remind.

    It's in the blood innit.

    On a side note. I listened to a 2fm broadcast some time back where a renowned professor of american heritage argued that the high rate of Irish mental illness today is attributable to the generations of starvation known as the great famine. It's something that effects the genes apparently.

    Personally I thing the good professor may be blind to our Celtic roots.

    No it's just the Irish weather that drives us mad.

    I agree, there is a melancholia in our Celtic roots.
