    irish ironsight:

    I'd like to hear it from a real live Irishman, but I'm 99% sure that our tradition of Corned Beef and Cabbage is an American invention, right?

    I heard it was because the Irish immigrants that came to America couldn't find the whole bacon they would boil, and since they were near Jewish immigrants in places like New York City, they adopted the corned beef the Jews had.

    I've also hear that St. Patrick's Day is more or less a quiet religious holiday in Ireland, not the big, loud, green, beer fueled one we have here in the US.

    When I lived back in IRE I had Corned Beef and Cabbage at least once a week. Then off to the local to down a few Pints of Guinness.
    When I go back home now, it's always the first meal the Mother makes for me as she knows it's my favourite.
    The day is off to Church in the morning. Than maybe the parade then to the bar before or after dinner. Maybe a dance that night. It is a good time to catch up with people.
    Yes I would say it is more of a party here.
