souper ({{{1}}})
  1. (Ireland, Template loop detected: Template:context 1) (during the Irish famine) a Protestant supplying food, (usually soup), to the starving if they rejected their Catholic beliefs.
  2. Sometimes referred to the person who had changed religions, rather than the person encouraging them.
    Some Catholics, in a desperate attempt to save the lives of their starving children, accepted this preferential treatment by converting to an alien faith and became known as 'Croghan Soupers' - named after a landed aristocracy in Roscommon. In some cases, soupers were protected by British soldiers from their co-religionists.
