Is Britain's cover-up of its 1845-1850 holocaust in
Ireland the most successful Big Lie in all of history?
The cover-up is
accomplished by the same British terrorism and bribery that perpetrated the
genocide. Consider: why does Irish President Mary Robinson call it "Ireland's
greatest natural  disaster" while she conceals the British army's role? Potato
blight, phytophthora infestans, did spread from America to Europe in 1844, to
England and then Ireland in 1845 but it didn't cause famine anywhere. Ireland
did not starve for potatoes; it starved for food.
because its food, from 40 to 70 shiploads per day, was removed at gunpoint by
12,000 British constables reinforced by the British militia, battleships, excise
vessels, Coast Guard and by 200,000 British soldiers (100,000 at any given
moment) The attached map shows the never-before-published names and locations in
Ireland of the food removal regiments (Disposition of the Army; Public Record
Office, London; et al, of which we possess photocopies). Thus, Britain seized
from Ireland's producers tens of millions of head of livestock; tens of millions
of tons of flour, grains, meat, poultry & dairy products; enough to sustain
18 million persons. The Public Record Office recently informed us that their
British regiments' Daily Activity Reports of 1845-1850 have "gone missing."
Those records include each regiment's cattle drives and grain-cart convoys it
escorted at gun-point from the Irish districts assigned to it. Also "missing"
are the receipts issued by the British army commissariat officers in every Irish
port tallying the cattle and tonnage of foodstuff removed; likewise the export
lading manifests. Other records provide all-revealing glimpses of the "missing"
data; such as:
From Cork harbor on one day in 1847  the AJAX
steamed for England with 1,514 firkins of butter, 102 casks of pork, 44
hogsheads of whiskey, 844 sacks of oats, 247 sacks of wheat, 106 bales of bacon,
13 casks of hams, 145 casks of porter, 12 sacks of fodder, 28 bales of feathers,
8 sacks of lard, 296 boxes of eggs, 30 head of cattle, 90 pigs, 220 lambs, 34
calves and 69 miscellaneous packages. On November 14, 1848 , sailed, from Cork
harbor alone: 147 bales of bacon, 120 casks and 135 barrels of pork, 5 casks of
hams, 149 casks of miscellaneous provisions (foodstuff); 1,996 sacks & 950
barrels of oats; 300 bags of flour; 300 head of cattle; 239 sheep; 9,398 firkins
of butter; 542 boxes of eggs. On July 28,1848 ; a typical day's food shipments
from only the following four ports: from Limerick: the ANN, JOHN GUISE and
MESSENGER for London; the PELTON CLINTON for Liverpool; and the CITY OF
LIMERICK, BRITISH QUEEN, and CAMBRIAN MAID for Glasgow. This one-day removal of
Limerick's food was of 863 firkins of butter; 212 firkins, 1,198 casks and 200
kegs of lard, 87 casks of ham; 267 bales of bacon; 52 barrels of pork; 45 tons
and 628 barrels of flour; 4,975 barrels of oats and 1,000 barrels of barley.
From Kilrush: the ELLEN for Bristol; the CHARLES G. FRYER and MARY ELLIOTT for
London. This one-day removal was of 550 tons of County Clare's oats and 15 tons
of its barley. From Tralee: the JOHN ST. BARBE, CLAUDIA and QUEEN for London;
the SPOKESMAN for Liverpool. This one-day removal was of 711 tons of Kerry's
oats and 118 tons of its barley. From Galway: the MARY, VICTORIA, and DILIGENCE
for London; the SWAN and UNION for Limerick (probably for transshipment to
England). This one-day removal was of 60 sacks of Co. Galway's flour; 30 sacks
and 292 tons of its oatmeal; 294 tons of its oats; and 140 tons of its
miscellaneous provisions (foodstuffs). British soldiers forcibly removed it from
its starving Limerick, Clare, Kerry and Galway producers.
Belmullet, Co. Mayo the mission of 151 soldiers  of the 49th Regiment was to
guard a few tons of meal from the hands of the starving; its population falling
from 237 to 105 between 1841 and 1851. Belmullet also lost its source of fish in
January, 1849, when Britain's Coast Guard arrested its fleet of enterprising
fishermen ten miles at sea in the act of off-loading flour from a passing ship.
They were sentenced to prison and their currachs were

leave Clonmel once a week for this place, with the export supplies under convoy
which, last Tuesday, consisted of 2 guns, 50 cavalry, and 80 infantry escorting

approximately 60,000 pigs in the form of cured pork.

Wexford-born Jane Wilde, mother of Oscar and poetess, wrote under the nom de
plume "Speranza," in the United Irishman newspaper the following (verses 1 and 6
printed here) during the depths of 1847 re the British genocidists and the
innocents they were exterminating:

Mrs. Wilde evidently knew that British arms controlled
every field of Ireland. Small detachments resided as far away as 40 miles from
their garrisons shown on the map. The absence of army garrisons in Co. Derry,
etc., indicates that its royalist militia adequately reinforced its
constabulary. Bayonets, cannons, rifles, the lash, eviction and the gallows were
freely used to seize Irish food (on the pretext that it was "the property" of
some English "owner"-by-robbery; nearly all of whom were absentees). But Wilde
couldn't have known each regiment's identity. We discovered them in the Public
Record Office, Kew Gardens, London in 1983 while researching material for my
paternal grandfather's biography. It was just as available to Irish
government-subsidized authors and academicians. Their Big Lie campaign is
shocking. Perhaps this brochure will encourage them to finally tell the truth;
that Britain perpetrated a Holocaust in Ireland.
intent at the time is revealed by its actions and enactments. When the European
potato crop failed in 1844 and food prices rose, Britain ordered regiments to
Ireland. When blight hit the 1845 English potato crop its food removal regiments
were already in Ireland; ready to start. The Times editorial of September 30,
1845, warned; "In England the two main meals of a working man's day now consists
of potatoes." England's potato-dependence was excessive; reckless. Grossly
over-populated relative to its food supply, England faced famine unless it could
import vast amounts of alternative food. But it didn't grab merely Ireland's
surplus food; or enough Irish food to save England. It took more; for profit and
to exterminate the people of Ireland. Queen Victoria's economist, Nassau Senior,
expressed his fear that existing policies "will not kill more than one million
Irish in 1848 and that will scarcely be enough to do much good."  When an
eye-witness urged a stop to the genocide-in-progress, Trevelyan replied: "We
must not complain of what we really want to obtain."  Trevelyan insisted that
all reports of starvation were exaggerated, until 1847. He then declared it
ended and refused entry to the American food relief ship Sorciére. Thomas
Carlyle; influential British essayist, wrote; "Ireland is like a half-starved
rat that crosses the path of an elephant. What must the elephant do? Squelch it,
by heavens, squelch it." "Total Annihilation;" suggested The Times leader of
September 2, 1846; and in 1848 its editorialists crowed "A Celt will soon be as
rare on the banks of the Shannon as the red man on the banks of Manhattan." The
immortal Society of Friends, the "Quakers," did all in their power to save
lives. But in 1847 they despaired and quit, upon learning that the Crown planned
to perpetuate the genocide's pretext; the British claim of "ownership" of Irish
land. Quakers refused to facilitate the genocide by pretending (as Concern does
re African genocides) it was an act of nature. In the 1870s; too late; British
laws were enacted allowing the Irish to buy back the land of which Britain had
robbed them. Twice-yearly payments were extracted from Ireland's farmers until
that "debt" was paid off in the 1970s. Ireland's diet, since pre-history, has
been meat, dairy products, grains, fruit and vegetables; latterly supplemented
by potatoes. Central to its ancient legends are its livestock, reaping hooks,
flails,  querns, and grain-kilns and -mills. The many Connaught grain-kilns and
-mills shown on the Irish Ordnance Survey Map of 1837-1841 operated continually
prior to, during the Starvation, and subsequent to it until the 1940s when I
observed them still working. Local farmers dried and milled their grain - not
potatoes - in them, and this oatmeal and flour were seized and exported by
British forces. The "potato famine" Big Lie was underway and already denounced
by John Mitchel in his United Irishman in 1847 (he was soon sent in chains to a
Tasmanian death camp; but escaped). Fifty years later G.B. Shaw wrote in Man and
Superman: "Malone: 'My father died of starvation in Ireland in the Black '47.
Maybe you've heard of it?' Violet: 'The Famine?' Malone: (with smoldering
passion) 'No, the Starvation. When a country is full of food and exporting it,
there can be no Famine."' But he kept mum on the British army's role; Ireland's
whole-truth-tellers don't receive Nobels. To date, the Big Lie prevails. It
started in 1846 when, while the British government genocidally stripped Ireland
of its abundant foodstuffs, internationally it was begging help for the
"starving Irish." John Mitchel remonstrated; "Many will, perhaps, be surprised
to learn neither Ireland, nor anybody in Ireland ever asked alms or favors of
any kind, either from England or from any other nation or people. On the
contrary, it was England herself that begged for us, asking a penny, for the
love of God, to relieve the poor Irish. And further, constituting herself the
almoner and agent of all that charity, she, England, took all the profit of it."
Mitchel again; 'Thus any man who had a house, no matter how wretched, was to pay
the new tax; and every man was bound to have a house; for if found out of doors
after sunset; and convicted of that offence, he was to be transported for
fifteen years, or imprisoned for three ( the court to have the discretion of
adding hard labor or solitary confinement. This law would drive the survivors of
ejected people (those who did not die of hunger) into the poorhouses or to
America; because, being bound to be at home after sunset, and having neither
house nor home, they would be all in the absolute power of the police, and in
continual peril of transportation to the colonies (Australian slave labor
camps). By another act of parliament the police force was increased, and taken
more immediately into the service of the Crown; the Irish counties were in part
relieved from their pay; and they became, in all senses, a portion of the
regular army. They amounted to twelve thousand chosen men, well armed and
drilled. The police were always at the command of sheriffs for executing
ejectments; and if they were not in sufficient force, troops of the line could
be had from the nearest garrison. No wonder that the London Times, within less
than three years after, was enabled to say; 'Law has ridden roughshod through
Ireland, it has been taught with bayonet, and interpreted with ruin. Townships
levelled with the ground, straggling columns of exiles, workhouses multiplied,
and still crowded, express the determination of the legislature to remove
Ireland from its slovenly old barbarism, and to plant the institutions of this
more civilized land' (meaning England!)" Mitchel also wrote; "Steadily, but
surely, the 'Government' was working out its calculation; and the produce
anticipated by 'political circles' was likely to come out about September (of
1847), in round numbers, two millions of Irish corpses." 
Irish Holocaust. The 1841 census of Ireland revealed a population of 10,897,449.
This figure includes the correction factor established by that year's official
partial recount. When, between 1779 and 1841, the U.S. population increased by
640 percent, and England's is estimated to have increased, despite massive
emigration to its colonies, by 100 percent, it is generally accepted that
Ireland's population increase was 172%. The average annual component of this
172% increase is x in the formula (1+ x)^62 = 1 + 172%; thus 0.0163, or 1.63%.
Accepting that this 1.63% rate of annual population increase continued until
mid-1846 (one human gestation after the late-1845 beginning of removal of
Ireland's food), the 1846 population was 11,815,011. Assuming that rate
continued, the population in 1851, absent the starvation, would have been
approximately 12,809,841. However; the 1851 census recorded a population of
6,552,385; thus there was a "disappearance" of 6,257,456. This population-loss
figure of 6,257,456 is scarcely susceptible to significant challenge, being
derived directly from the British government's own censuses for Ireland. It is
reasonable to assume that the rigor established in the recount of 1841 became
the standard for the 1851 census; so that any residual undercount would be
systemic, affecting 1841 and 1851 proportionately (and, if known, would increase
the murder total).These 6,257,456 include roughly 1,000,000 who successfully
fled into exile and another 100,000 unborn between 1846 and 1851 due to
malnutrition-induced infertility. Of the 100,000 who fled to Canada in 1847,
only 60,000 were still alive one month after landing.  Among the 40,000 dead
was Henry Ford's father's mother who died en route from Cork or in quarantine on
Quebec's Grosse Ile. Thus; though from 1845 through 1850, 6,257,456
"disappeared," the number murdered is approximately 1.1 million fewer; i.e.,
5.16 millions. Consequently; if Britain's census figures for Ireland are correct
the British government murdered approximately 5.16 million Irish men, women and
children; making it the Irish Holocaust. This number, 5.16 million, exceeds the
high end of the range (4.2 to 5.1m) of serious estimates of the number of Jews
murdered by Nazis. The least reliable component of the foregoing arithmetic is
the number assumed to have successfully fled. If the fleers who survived prove
to number, say, 900,000 instead of 1,000,000, the murder count will have to be
corrected from 5.16 to 5.26 millions. This amount of adjustment, up or down, of
the 5.16 millions murdered is determinable by sensitive review of the
immigration records of the U.S., Canada, Argentina, and Australia; and of
government records on the Irish who fled to Britain at the time. We invite bona
fide documentation of the foregoing; whether in confirmation or rebuttal.
Economists and historians are disqualified if their published work on the events
of 1845-1850 covers up the British army's central role therein. Such individuals
lack the standing to participate in this truth-quest.
knowledge nobody else has ever published the above arithmetic or named the food
removal regiments and battleships. Evidence that other truth-telling accounts
exist would be greatly appreciated. Irish academia shuns and slurs Tom
Gallagher's Paddy's Lament and Englishwoman Cecil Woodham-Smith's The Great
Hunger for mentioning the Food Removal. Woodham-Smith fudged, but not enough to
satisfy the cover-up cabal. For example; she reported that the 1841 partial
recount established a correction factor of one-third for the 1841 census figure;
but she used the uncorrected figure to calculate! By this and other fudges she
arrived at a population-loss of only 2.5 million. She allocated only half a page
to the core facts of the Genocide; the food removal data, while using some two
hundred pages to describe British government "relief measures" as if they were
something other than cosmetic exercises; a cover-up. But just as Telefis Eireann
out-Britished Yorkshire TV by refusing to co-premiere the latter's 1993 exposé
of the 5/17/74 British bombings of Dublin/Monaghan streets that murdered 33 and
maimed 253; and as the Irish police menace the survivors of that bombing instead
of arresting the known British perpetrators; so do Irish historians out-British
Woodham-Smith by ostracizing her for exposing the Food Removal. They out-do
themselves in describing the "benefit" of the Irish Holocaust; how Britain
reduced poverty in Ireland ( by murdering those it had impoverished! They
promote the notion that only the blighted potato crop belonged to the Irish
while Ireland's abundant livestock, grains, etc., all "belonged" to mostly
absentee English landlords. By that insane standard all of the property and
production of Europe and Asia, excepting starvation rations for workers, would
belong to W.W.II GIs and their heirs (or to the Axis had it won).
Irish are not guilty. Though many Holocaust Irish, like many, say,
Auschwitz Jews, took deadly advantage of their own weakest, neither the Irish
nor Jewish communities had hand or part in the conceiving and planning of the
genocides from London and Berlin; respectively. But, the German government
repented and paid $100 billion (dollars) reparations to Jews while the British
government and its Dublin surrogates still use terror and slander against those
who commemorate the Irish Holocaust. It is still dangerous ( after 150 years (
to reveal the truth of it.
Complicity of the Catholic Hierarchy
with London's planned genocide is, sad to say, well recorded. London, prior to
removing Ireland's food, appointed a few Irish Catholic Bishops to a Dublin
Castle commission and awarded a L30,000 lump sum to Maynooth while increasing
its annual grant from L9,000 to L26,000!  Before British troops began starving
Ireland the London parliament enacted a law to return some of the seized foods
in the form of rations to all of Ireland's Catholic hierarchy down to the level
of, but not including, curates. Faced with residual hierarchical disquiet, M.P.s
amended the law to include curates. This ended obispal objections to the Irish
Holocaust; it proceeded efficiently thenceforth. An Irish poet subsequently
wrote; "...for the spire of the chapel of Maynooth is the dagger at Ireland's
heart." A Munster bishop thanked God that he "lives in a country where a farmer
would starve his own children to pay his landlord's rent"! For two centuries
until 1795, priests in Ireland were felons a priori. The government paid a 5
shilling bounty for each severed head. In 1795, British ministers decided that
to completely subjugate Ireland the collaboration of the Catholic Church was
indispensable. Britain thus stopped murdering priests and founded and funded
Ireland's national seminary; Maynooth. The tactic worked; the Irish Catholic
Church became London's tool.  It facilitated the Irish Holocaust; it sided with
Britain in the Risings of 1798, 1848, 1867 and 1916, destroyed Parnellite
democracy in 1890 (traumatizing James Joyce)  and it has facilitated Britain's
vestigial genocide in the Six Counties since 1922. Cardinal Daly recently went
so far as to "beg England's forgiveness for the centuries of suffering inflicted
upon it by the Irish!" Yet; isn't Catholicism as gloriously redeemed by its
persecuted Fr. Wilsons and Sr. Sarah Clarkes of today as by its earlier millions
of saints martyred by Elizabeth I, Cromwell, Anne, George III, Victoria, et al?
Irish Starvation Martyrs. Honorable Irish people everywhere are
commemorating Ireland's Holocaust of 1845-1850 by learning the truth of it.
Thus, only dupes of British propaganda still refer to "The Irish Famine," as
nobody died of lack of potatoes; but over five million Irish Catholics died of
starvation or of malnutrition-induced disease when British troops removed their
meats, grains, dairy products, etc. Britain could have removed food enough to
sustain 13 million (but not 18 million) without starving Ireland. No Protestant
starved in Ireland  Britain didn't target them.
The Truth Outs
as we, the descendants of the survivors of that starvation will no longer be
silenced. We denounce Ireland's Strokestown "Famine Museum," for its shameless
"bait and switch" scam. Visitors seeking details of one of history's worst
genocides are subtly invited to admire the genocidal landlord's grandiose taste
in architecture and furnishings; all looted from the unpaid labor and land of
the Irish families he murdered. It is highly unlikely that a Jew exists so
depraved as to establish a Jewish Holocaust museum that similarly invites the
visitor to slur the victims and admire, say, Goering's taste in looted Jewish
property. How dare President Robinson say "the famine shames the Irish"? It is
her cover-up that shames the Irish! As Holocaust guilt is Nazis', not the
victims', so the guilt for 1845-1850 is the British perpetrators' and the above
cover-up artists'; not ours and not their murdered victims'. Irish-America must
tell the truth of it because in Ireland it is still too dangerous. The Irish
government has announced that in June, 1997 it will end the "Irish Famine
commemoration" in a "wake cum musical celebration to bury the ghost of the
famine." Thus; the Irish government advertises its quisling status by ending the
commemoration prior to the anniversaries of the murders of more than half of the
5.2 millions. What else can one expect from the government whose Consuls spoke
in Illinois' State Legislature in opposition to the McBride Principles for Fair
Employment in Northern Ireland? They pose as anti-terrorists while collaborating
with the British terrorists who, since 1969, have murdered over six times  as
many noncombatants as have the IRA. An Irish bureaucrat recently joined our
campaign to get the Irish Holocaust graves monumented, fenced and consecrated.
He tells us that he will be fired or worse if his superiors learn of his
involvement. He echoes another Irishman who, two centuries ago, observed;
"Having a natural reverence for the dignity and antiquity of my native country,
strengthened by education, and confirmed by an intimate knowledge of its
history, I could not, without the greatest pain and indignation, behold ... the
extreme passiveness and insensibility of the present race of Irish, at such
reiterated insults offered to truth and their country: instances of inattention
to their own honor, unexampled in any other civilized nation." 
Dishonored Martyrs; their Mass Graves. The discovery of
mass graves resulting from genocide always causes international outcry. But the
mass graves of the Irish genocide are unmarked and unmourned by the world at
large. Why? Because the Truth was interred in those pits along with the martyrs.
The bones of the murdered 5.2 million are scattered across Ireland, the Atlantic
sea-floor and North American littorals; but they are concentrated in mass graves
the permanently-abandoned state of which eloquently reveals the genocidists'
power. It was also mass martyrdom; as the victims could have saved their lives
by renouncing their Faith. Food crops that civil law had forced them to tithe
(before soldiers took the rest) to the local English State Church parson was on
offer to whoever would renounce Catholicism and become Anglican. But they died
for Faith and Freedom, and their mass graves are Ireland's holiest places
(excepting, perhaps, the graves of those who died resisting). Yet, the souls of
these murdered millions still cry to us for justice. After 150 years their
murders remain misattributed and the mass graves containing their sacred remains
are still unfenced, unmarked and even unconsecrated. It is not the Irish people
who are such brutes. The condition of the mass graves reveals the brutal extent
of English control of Ireland today; how unfree Ireland actually is. But America
is free; Britain's MI6 can slur us but cannot murder us with the impunity they
do in Dublin, Monaghan, the Occupied Six Counties, and as did British guards who
entered the Maghaberry prison cell of Irishman Jim McDonnell on 3/30/96 and
kicked him to death for asking to go to his father's funeral. British
terrorists, however, are operating in the U.S. In Valhalla's Wake, authors
McIntyre & Loftus report that, according to CIA sources, an MI6/SAS team of
assassins murdered an American, John McIntyre, in Boston a decade ago. Five US
citizens have been murdered by British terrorists in Ireland; none by the Irish.
A law-abiding FBI agent alerted us a few years ago that some of his fellow
agents; British-bribed; were planning MI6-type "dirty-tricks" crimes against us
and that he was powerless to arrest them. Soon thereafter, FBI gangs, led by
agent Edward P. Buckley, conducted five armed raids upon us, incarcerated me and
my wife and two others, and fabricated evidentiary tape and committed perjury in
an attempt to imprison us. The FBI also framed me for the murder of Mr. and
Mrs. Langert in Winnetka; but the actual murderer, David Biro, saved my life by
confiding his crimes to school friends who informed the police. Biro, a
16-year-old, got life without parole. I would have gotten lethal injection. I
knew nobody involved; had never heard of them in my entire life until the
reports of the murders. Our attorneys photocopied the signed, FBI-fabricated
police report that framed me. FBI/IRS crimes against us started shortly after we
began exposing Britain's Big Lie re Ireland. American democracy is, we sense,
less violated by these FBI/IRS crimes than by the fact that law enforcement,
pols and the news media have all, British-style, knowingly covered them up and
that the legal profession is cowed. The FBI criminals' British handlers tried to
"take us out" to stop our support for basic rights in Ireland. The FBI later
fabricated a malicious "immunity certificate" for me and my wife (making us
appear to be FBI collaborators) and leaked it to an FBI asset for publication.
What We Must Do.
Let us now; finally; come what may;
summon our integrity to accomplish four Irish Holocaust goals; as follows:
1) Educate: Photocopy this and distribute it among your relatives,
friends and acquaintances. Discuss it with them. Challenge Robinson-type
"famine" lecturers who don't identify the perpetrating regiments. Click here to
download a text version of this brochure, a pintable version from the web site,
or the Original Microsoft Word document.
2) Help get the Irish
Genocide Taught in Public Schools as Slavery & Holocaust are now. Get your
State Rep and Senator to support an Irish Genocide Education Bill.
3)Canonization of the Starvation Martyrs: Contact Hibernians (fax
407/254-2255) or us for canonization petition forms.
4) Help to
install a fence and monuments memorializing the Starvation Martyrs of the mass
grave nearest your ancestral homeplaces (see attached map). You can help by
phoning (312/664-7651) in your $160 pledge toward the specific Mass Grave you
choose. For each donation sent to Ireland, a brass plate will be installed on a
donors' wall at the Mass Grave. The plate will be engraved with your name or
that of someone you wish to memorialize. All overhead costs of each volunteer
will be at his/her personal expense (just as we who researched, printed, and
distributed this flyer paid all the related expenses personally). Each Mass
Grave district committee will be comprised of similarly self-funded volunteers.
Accounting controls will ensure that donations go exclusively to fund
carefully-awarded design, construction and landscaping contracts.
Volunteers From Each Mass Grave District will organize an
architectural competition to design its memorial. They will research its old
work-house records, etc., to collect data on the Martyrs. The overall design of
each mass grave memorialization will be decided by the district committee and
its architect. Ideally it will include a fence, walks, benches and a soaring
monument with a prie-dieu facing it. It will include, as gaeilge, each Martyr's
name, age, townland, date of death, etc., to the extent possible. It will name
the regiment(s), its British home-base town, and the quantity of livestock and
tonnage of each kind of foodstuff it removed from that mass grave's district.
Where appropriate it will memorialize the righteous Quakers, Choctaws, DeKay,
the Martins, et al.
Ireland's Personifications of Truth. Dates of
each mass-grave consecration/inauguration will be publicized well in advance to
allow overseas visitors to attend. The consecrations shall be performed by
Ireland's living Saints; by such personifications of Truth as Frs. Desmond
Wilson, Píaras O Dúill, Pat Ryan, Joseph McVeigh, Maurice Burke, Ray Murray,
Sister Sarah Clarke, the Rev. Dr. Brian Murphy, the Presbyterian Rev. Dr.
Terence McCaughey and Anglican Bishop Austin Baker. Local organizers will
consider inviting mayors of the corresponding regimental headquarters towns to
their memorial consecration/inauguration in a spirit of forgiveness and
reconciliation. For example; South Galway organizers could invite the mayor of
Taunton, Somerset, the home base of the regiment (see map) that starved it; the
then 40th "Duke of Somerset's Own" Regiment of Foot. If, by the inauguration
dates, the British government has ended its Irish genocide's final vestige in
the Six Counties, has released all Irish political prisoners and repents
publicly of its centuries of genocide and torture in Ireland it would make
national forgiveness possible, and English Cabinet ministers could be invited.
Then, at each mass-grave consecration/inauguration and on behalf
of its Martyred Dead and of all of us the Fr. Wilsons of Ireland will Forgive
the English people; Unreservedly. At the sides of those mass graves we will, all
of us, in the name of those Irish Martyrs, vow to do all in our power to stop
any government from ever again inflicting artificial famine. Likewise at those
grave-sides we will vow to thenceforth respond to true famines and unstoppable
artificial ones by uniting to promptly buy foodstuff and ship it to where
needed. Those martyred souls whose unheeded cries for justice have haunted the
virtuous Irish psyche for the past 150 years will be finally vindicated and
canonized. Their sacrifices will redeem the Irish people who will break London's
control of Ireland's government, academia, news media and Catholic hierarchy.
Then, Forthrightness, that admirable quality that characterizes all free peoples
will, after centuries, blossom fully again in Ireland. For the next millennium
we Irish families of the Diaspora will return to kneel at the mass graves of
Ireland's Starvation Martyrs. We will there renew our commitments to feed the
hungry. Through prayerful contemplation of the Martyrs' sacrifice the Irish will
finally become whole.
Let us create truth-telling, reverent
memorials at each of the 170 mass graves of Ireland's Holocaust. The list of
$160 pledges grows. Artists and curators from each Irish-American population
center are needed to help select monument designs. Phone, e-mail

The following postscript added
Truth Arises. The Brit/Irish government is intensifying its
cover-up efforts. The British Consulate's p.r. specialist Gaynor demanded that
we cease distribution outside Chicago's Old St. Patrick church, saying; "How
dare you? Your pamphlets are contradicting my Irish Potato Famine display
inside!" Her Irish Holocaust Cover-up tour of the US was fronted in Chicago by
the Irish Consul, the AOH, Catholic priests, et al. To co-opt our bill to
mandate Irish Holocaust awareness in Illinois schools Irish Consul General
Sheridan is promoting a parallel "Potato Famine" one. Irish Teachta Dala (M.P.)
Avril Doyle recently promoted that "famine" lie across the U.S., including at
Notre Dame U. The Brit/Irish government got massive space for her on National
Public Radio, Irish-American radio, and mainstream and Irish-American
newspapers. All news outlets who disseminated her untruths ban this pamphlet's
truths. Shades of 1847 of which Mitchel wrote in p. 229 of his History of
Ireland; "But there was a secret and underground machinery. The editor of the
World (newspaper) was now on full pay; and on terms of close intimacy at the
Castle and Viceregal Lodge." However; other truth-tellers exist. See attached
copy of letter in Saoirse that reveals what awaited the Holocaust Irish in
The Workhouses operated as diabolical factories. The
sign out front might as well have read "Queen Victoria's Title Guarantee Co."
They produced clear titles to Irish land for English landlords, as follows; the
starving Irish (raw material) entered the workhouse as claimants to the lands of
their ancestors and to land they improved. As a condition of entry they had to
sign away their claim to all of it but a quarter-acre. Once this was done the
starvelings became the "factory's" waste product; and were moved nearer to the
Dying Room as they weakened. In the Castlerea workhouse, and presumably in many
or most others, the Dying Rooms were located at the back end of the workhouse on
the upper floor adjacent to a wall opening where, when the deed was done, the
corpse was pushed through the opening and slid down a chute into a mass grave
outside the building. Thus, landlords' titles were guaranteed and the waste
product was disposed of efficiently. Most of the mass graves located on the map
are those dumps; unchanged from 150 years ago except for the overgrowth of grass
and weeds. Not one of the 170 of them has a marker that identifies the regiment
that removed its district's foodstuffs. FIN
