Making Bread

Ballinasloe, Co. Galway

Long ago people made oaten bread with water and sugar. It was baked on a grid iron. Boxty was baked on a griddle and a cross put on it to keep it from bursting out at the sides. In Lent people used to ‘make bread out of flour with potato barm, before yeast was heard of’.
