Whilst I am in no way knowledgable on The Famine, I was told that the Quakers
played a great part in famine relief. Did the programme mention the
expression 'taking the soup' whereby people were encouraged to change their
religion to that of whichever was providing the soup? There's no connection
between that and the Quakers so far as I'm aware.

We haven't had the T.V. programme over here yet.

Yours aye
