>My grandmother came from County Longford, and she used to say, "He's Irish
as Pat Murphy's pig!" They used to call me "The little aristocrat." When I
was young and we were low on food my mother used to make "Potatoes Kolcannon
(?)," which was mashed potatoes with onion and lots of butter. Was that I
real dish I wonder, or just a fantasy?
