Yes I am Irish ! My great times 4 grandmother was Catherine Coyle on my fathers side . On my mothers side German & British . Mom's dad was born in England . Oma was born in Germany . Anyhoo , I don't care for corned beef, love cabbage but not suppose to have it due to my colitis . So, today for the first time ever I'm making Irish Sheperds Pie . Wishing you all luck and best wishes this St Patricks Day ! Wear your green proudly .
