Food That Was Eaten in This Area

Lettera, Co. Galway

Bread, milk, potatoes and porridge were the main things eaten at meal times. Boxty, made from potatoes was also popular and porridge was made by boiling a large pot of water hung over the fire. The oats and some salt was added and mixed with a ‘potstick’ until thick and served on plates with some milk. People drank out of noggins which was a type of wooden jug.
