Public confusion over the number of loaves and fish involved in the story of the 'the feeding of the 5,000'.

How many loaves and fishes were involved in the miracle in the bible story?

Frank Hall posed this question to the general public in Trinity College Dublin for an 'Ireland's Eye' report broadcast on 22 January, 1982 on RTÉ 2.

There were 5 loaves and 2 fishes. The story of the loaves and the fishes is from the Gospel of John and is also referred to as 'the feeding of the 5,000'.

'Ireland's Eye' was a Tuesday-to-Friday series with human-interest stories and filmed in locations throughout Ireland. First broadcast on 7 October 1980, the programme ran until August 1983 on RTÉ 2.
