DNA testing finds real Irish famine culprit

You can discuss some non-genetic or non-genealogical things here. Pull up a chair and have a beer! But if you bring up politics or religion, the barman will cut you off. The forum rules do apply here especially regarding civility.

Political decisions aside (please), this is the bugger that killed the tatters that then killed so many Irish and others...

The bottom line remains the same. Those taters died, then so did a lot of Irish people.

As you say, political decisions should not be discussed here. See Wikipedia's article on the Great Famine for that.

The more specific topic appropriate to this forum (IMHO) is the DNA analysis of the Irish potato blight of that period. Here is the actual research paper.
