Irish leaders entered the picture when the 1847 Poor Laws backfired, leading landowners to mass-evict their starving tenants.

The Young Irelanders split off from the Repeal Association, and as a result, both the rebellious and the moderate minds of the country lost significant traction, unable to fight the famine alone.
