      After the Famine had concluded, the population of Ireland declined greatly. The population fell from 8.1 million in 1841 to 6.5 million in 1851. Approximately 1 million people died of starvation or disease whilst another million emigrated to countries such as Britain, Canada or the United States. There was a decline in the Irish language. Parents wanted children to know English when they left the country so they encouraged them to forget about the Irish language. There was also a decline of cottiers and small farmers. Their land went to bigger and richer farmers. Plus, farmers no longer subdivided their farms.

      ^ Three impacts straight to the point, full marks.
