Any Irish Out There?

Hi. OK. Maiden name; Seymour. Grandmother: Helen Long. Great-grandmother: Molly Ahearn. Any relatives out there? My question is this- I eat corned beef and cabbage every St. Pat's day, but is it authentic?? I have a feeling that people in Ireland don't. Anyone know?

When I was in Ireland corned beef and cabbage was rarely on the menu. I think I saw it once and that was in Dublin.

But I can say I had absolutely no problems eating in Ireland and I love Ireland for many reasons.

I'm half or so irish, not the same families though :) (I'm McDonald, Dowling, and Inch)

I have lived in Ireland though, and my experience was this: while they do eat boiled seasoned meat and cabbage, fairly often, its not a specific St Patricks thing. St Patricks is a religious holiday. You go to Mass. And, its during Lent. So the giant partying is an American thing, though now some of it has retroactively spilled back to Ireland. Now there are parades and stuff, but its not traditional.

I'm the daughter of an irish immigrant who married into an irish-american family, does that count? :P

I don't really celebrate St Pat's outside my home, but I tend to make some traditional food for my friends. We're having a game day this weekend and I'm making some gluten-free soda bread and some mini meat pies, both foods from my childhood. I did eat a lot of boiled cabbage and potatoes and parsnips(ew) as a kid, mostly at my irish grannies house. I remember brisket but no corned beef like they sell on St. Pat's here, corned beef was always something you had as hash for breakfast.

Lamb stew with barley and dumplings was always our St Pat's meal. Of course now I use rice instead of barley and make the dumplings with Pamela's mix.. but hey, it works.

I am almost 1/2 Irish, mostly Swedish. My grandma always cooked "farm fresh" food but never taught us anything specifically Irish. Probably b/c she was an orphan and never learned. She taught me how to bake COOKIES! She was a great cook. Names are Anderson, Neilson and Peterson, beyond that IDK.
