Why did Peel repeal the Corn Laws 1846, and with what relation to the Irish Famine?

I understand it was needed to supply Ireland with US maize, and that Peel had always believed in free trade economics (and therefore felt it was necessary after his tariff reforms) however I feel that I do not know enough different aspects and areas to answer an exam question.

Thanks for helping :)
