    Awesome indeed. An outstanding piece of documentary film-making. It almost
    transports you to the Island. Beautiful.

  • Richard Humbles says:

    most people dont realise the fact that the accent/dialect (not meaning
    african rooted vocabulary, thats different) with which english is spoken in
    the Caribbean is almost directly rooted to the massive wave 1000,000 of
    irish prisoners, women and children whom were brought and put to work along
    with african imported slaves.

    Is this been taught in schools in Montserrat? Why wasn’t this taught in
    Irish and Brirish schools. It should be taught in every school. I doubt
    very much if many people (not even the Irish themselfs) knows or heard
    about this.I find it so very interesting and very moving. Thank you for
    putting this on YouTube.

    Ahh daym I ah love tah live ere

  • Doolstar1 says:

    I loved this documentary but the facts are not entirely correct. Over
    500,000 Irish people were Brutally kidnapped and forced/sold into Slavery
    and sent to Montserrat, Antigua, St Kitts and North and South America. The
    Irish were slaves or Priests on the Island and encouraged and helped the
    African Slaves revolt in 1768. It was the British who were the land owners.
    Irish people were not allowed to own land. Irish people did not flea to
    here for religious belief they were held captives.
