Brútán Neantóg

Creggs, Co. Galway

Brútán Neantóg was made by collecting nettles and boiling them to make a kind of liquid soup. It was thought that if this mixture was consumed then that person would not experience any sickness during the year. This was said to be especially true if consumed in the month of March.
