There is said if famine didn't appear today Ireland would have about 25 milion people or more.

Things may have been even worse if not for this man who led relief efforts in some areas https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pawe%C5%82_Strzelecki

My Mom's father's family the O'Dwyers - 3rd GGF from Clare (originally from Kilnamanagh) - I heard Clare was one of the hardest hit by the famine? My 2nd GGF Joseph O'Dwyer came over with the rest of his siblings and perhaps some Aunts? 3rd GGF Philip O'Dwyer never left Ireland nor did his wife Leonara. Also my 2nd GGM Mary's parents were Irish and left and she was born over here in the States - that's all on my Mom's side - maternal line being T2b2b from Ireland. Also McGuires from Ireland via Ontario (married with Scottish Highlanders MacDonalds, MacAulays etc). Mother's father would only say about the O'Dwyers he was descended from - that they were those "famous horse thieves" that stole St. Leger's kinsman's horses... he hated Cromwell ;-).
