Big fan! Love your work and the detailing which you employ in your videos.
I'm not qualified enough to raise doubts on you and your work, but there is something which I want to share with you.
I've some doubts here vis-a-vis the astonishing decline in the population of Ireland in the late 1800. I don't think it's appropriate to directly correlate the potatoes with population rise and/or decline. Let's just say, for the sake of argument, there is some correlation, but "Correlation doesn't imply causation". We all know about "Irish Diaspora" and the decline in the population is majorly due to this mass emigration and gradual decline in the population. And I quote from wiki :
"Since 1700 between 9 and 10 million people born in Ireland have emigrated, including those that went to Great Britain. This is more than the population of Ireland at its historical peak in the 1830s of 8.5 million. From 1830 to 1914, almost 5 million went to the United States alone.
Socio-political conflicts between traditional Irish people and the then British Empire :
Irish people at home were facing discrimination from Great Britain based on the former's religion. Evictions only increased after the repeal of the British Corn Laws in 1846 and the new Encumbered Estates Act being passed in 1849 as well as the removal of existing civil rights. There had been agrarian terrorism against landlords which these new laws were implemented to stop the retribution. Any hope for change was squashed with the death of Daniel O'Connell in 1847, the political leader championing for Ireland, and the failed rising of the Young Irelanders in 1848. More was to be gained by immigrating to America from Ireland and the 1848 finding of gold in the Sierra Nevada lured away more."
Perhaps, you should have mentioned the term "Irish Diaspora" and "other" reason in the video along with the potatoes.
P.S- I mentioned you on twitter as well, you didn't reply there.
