This is a very small introduction to the Famine years and to the Revolutions of 1848.  I use it in my AP European History classes at Arroyo Grande (CA) high school.  The beautiful performance and the images are part of the way I teach history:  they've got to know history in their hearts as well as their heads.

You've captured the soul of Ireland in only six minutes, Jim. Go raibh mile maith agat! The last few pix I found particularly stirring. Your mother was a great beauty! (Perhaps she still is!) Ger
