Image of an illustration called The Ejectment, which depicts the removal of an Irish tenant family, from their home, for non-payment of rent.

The impact of the potato-crop failure on farm-tenant families was unbelievably harsh. A famine occurred, for such people, not because Ireland had no food - exports remained high - but because there was no food for the potato-farmers whose crops had failed.

The image, above, illustrates an article, "Evictions of Peasantry in Ireland," published in the December 16, 1848 issue of The Illustrated London News.
