Food From Long Ago

Glenamaddy, Co. Galway

The food they used long away was mostly potatoes, milk and porridge. Often they had dry bread and tea for their first meal and worked for a few hours before the breakfast.

When eating, the table would be in the middle of the floor but never had the table hanging on the wall. They used fowl’s meat that was their own and fish they bought at the market.
