Priests, People, and Politics
in Famine Ireland,
DONAL A. KERR
'We are still struggling with famine and fever, and what is more than both, the demoralization of our people consequent on the system of relief that this incapable Government has inflicted on the country. Every feeling of decent spirit . . . has vanished, and instead there is created . . . a Nation of Beggars.'
Archbishop Slattery of Cashel to Laurence Reneban, president of Maynooth College, June 1847
