Special Occasions

Glenamaddy, Co. Galway

here was no special food for such occasions as Christmas and Easter. Current cakes and eggs were not available. Thomas Dillon’s parents had never heard of the flat stone for grinding corn.

People used to make potato cake and boxty, and still make it now. A cross would be put on the top of the cake to make it bake well.
