Tithe na Tomatoes

TG4 Ireland 4 October 2015 - Irish with embedded English subtitles

The documentary sheds light on the Tomato House scheme of 1947, in which 200 greenhouses were erected in Connemara and Donegal to boost the economy. Families were taught how to tend and grow tomatoes, as well as how to harvest and market their fruit, but in 1961 Hurricane Debbie struck and destroyed many of the greenhouses.
