My granny Helen Flattery from Drim, Milltown told me about food when she was small.
They did not have much sweets. They ate a lot of bread. They made potato cakes. You make them with milk, flour, and potatoes. You mix them together and fry them in a pan. For a treat at Christmas, they got some raisins and a small biscuit. They had porridge for breakfast every morning. Eggs and vegetables were eaten a lot.
