Summary - Famine at the time of the potato blight.

There was a great shortage of food the year of the potato blight, but in Uist the fishing was good that year. There was a very bad year in 1923 and the crops and potatoes were ruined by a very bad summer. Very few were able to get peats home. A distress fund was set up and people got money to construct peat roads.
