Food Available When Working

Caherlustraun, Co. Galway

There wasn’t much food available besides oatmeal. This was used to make cakes. Gravy was made from goose grease and cabbage was boiled on its own and eaten with potatoes. One day when Maggie McConnell’s grandparents went to Brackloon to cut wheat they ate potatoes with salt and a drink of water for breakfast, oatmeal cake for their dinner and potatoes for their supper.
