THE IRISH PENAL CODE.
SHAME !
Both the Scottish and the Irish people suffered great hardships & soul destroying poverty under the ENGLISH domination, it was a time of savagery by the English peers, there was a lot of land grabing, it was indeed a very black sick  page in English History....the Irish people were  reduced to beggary, bog Irish, living in ditches, suffering starvation, deprived of any sustanance  as terrible inhuman laws were passed, as below and then gentry of  Ireland were no more, as greedy English stole their land and their lives.....
the Scots were hunted as dogs in the highlands by the English, one among many is terrible woeful tale is the massacre at Glencoe, and many a sad and woeful tale and song of these horrific times waft thru the misty heartrending pages of history, knitted into the fabric of a nations soul forevermore.......
