Meals During the Day

Glenamaddy, Co. Galway

People ate 3 times a day but had no clocks and ate whatever they felt like having at the time. Usually they ate potatoes, porridge and oaten bread. They drank tea or sour milk. They used a skib instead of a table with a pot on top, all placed in the middle of the floor. Herring and trout could be caught in the rivers and lakes.
