  2. Bread
    Bread is our principal food for we eat it three times a day:- for our breakfast, dinner and tea. About a hundred years ago in Ireland there was a terrible famine and we know that it was caused by a very bad crop of potatoes for nearly all the people had a lot of potatoes and very little corn. The people made bread out of every sort of material for instance the people of Cloneyhague district, about two and a half miles from Tyrrellspass made bread out of turnips and pollard in famine times.
