Fried Bread Going To School

Interviewer: Clare Doyle (CD)

Interviewee: Martin Monahan (MM)


CD: And can you remember the first time you tasted tea or coffee?

MM: I used to always have tea, anyhow

CD: Yeah. Some people don’t like tea and some people don’t like coffee

MM: But then…I didn’t like coffee until a couple of years ago

CD: Yeah, it’s…

MM: I used always drink tea and then I started drinking coffee, and then I got out of it because it wasn’t agreeing with me

CD: Yeah. Usually, when you go into people’s houses they give you the cup of tea

MM: The cup of tea. That was always the tradition

CD: That’s it. What would you eat for your breakfast in the morning? If you had a choice of anything you’d like to eat what would you eat?

MM: We used to eat fried bread

CD: Oh, very nice

MM: My mother used to cook it. In the pan. I used to always have that before I’d go to school, so I would. Fried bread.

CD: And would that be fried in butter?

MM: No, well just put butter under it and fry it

CD: Very nice. That would keep you going until the lunch time

MM: It would. I used always have the friend bread before I went to school.

CD: It would keep you warm as well

MM: It would, I used to love it

CD: It’s very nice
