Eating Fish

Newcastle, Co. Galway

Long ago people used to only eat fish. Those who were far from the sea could send for a barrel of fish that was salted and placed in barrels by the fishermen. In other parts of the country people ate different food. There was oaten meal porridge, buttermilk, potatoes and salt, and porridge for supper.
