Common Food

Cappataggle, Co. Galway

The most common food eaten in the area was porridge and potatoes. Milk was taken at every meal rather than tea and sometimes buttermilk used with potatoes. People ate their meals sitting around the table and they sometimes had American Bacon sold at 3p per pound. Fish was quite plentiful.
