Mismanaged, Eric? Their Sassenach overlords stole everything not nailed down and a lot of things that were, stripped Ireland down to the bare bones, and in classic overlord manner, then blamed the Irish for their poverty, backwardness, lack of education (having closed all their schools) etc-tiresome-cetera....
Patricia Mathews, nee Shaw.

Gwynne: They didn't just close the schools; some of the early convicts
sent to Australia were convicted for teaching in Ireland. At that time it
was against the law to teach the peasants to read.
