Bread Eaten in the Area

Cappataggle, Co. Galway

Oaten bread was the most popular as well as wheaten bread. People made oaten bread using hand querns that they grind the oats onto and caught in a sheet on the table. Boxty and potato cake were also popular. Bread was made every day and a cross placed on the top before cooking to make it rise. The bread could be cooked on the oven or on a griddle.
