Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a real Irish receipe. My Grandma, Mary (Killilea) was born in Galway Ireland in 1896. She came to the U.S.A. at the age of 16. She made Soda Bread for her sons, Ed and Jack, especially on St. Patrick's Day. As we were growing up, Grandma Mary taught us to make Soda Bread. It is wonderful with a hot cup of tea!
