Different Types of Bread

Cleggan, Co. Galway

There are many different types of bread eaten in the area. These include soda bread, brown bread, loaf bread and pancakes. The old people were very fond of potato cake. During the famine people had nothing to eat and ate herbs and pulled up the sets before the potatoes were grown.
