Corrib County Brown Bread
In 1991, I opened Corrib County Café & Restaurant on the Main St of Oughterard. It was a place where people came, particularly women to meet, chat and have some home bakes. The corribCounty Brown Bread was a particular favourite. I am happy to share the recipe and to remember the many times CorribCounty was a place to “meet in town”
