Summary
"In this program, an archaeological dig in Ireland and a genealogical investigation in America are linked by family ties to the Neary family, 19th-century tenant farmers in Ballykilcline. Senator Kennedy, archaeologist Charles Orser, and others sift through Ireland's history to shed light on the catastrophic potato famine; provide an unvarnished account of the mass exodus through which America ultimately gained so much; and break, at last, the 'great silence' surrounding the Neary rent strike that put a match to the powder keg of Irish unrest under English rule."--Container
