May You Be Blessed This first Day of March…..
AN IRISH SKETCHBOOK ;
Donegal Town Ireland.
HOW DID THEY COME UP WITH THESE NAMES?!?
Over the millennia, Gaelic and Viking names have become anglicized; later, when the tables turned, English names became Gaelicized. Spelling isn’t as important as pronunciation…….which is almost impossible anyway.
Dun: fortified area, castle, or fortress.
IN MY IRISH KITCHEN
Cead Mile Failte Romhat!

Do you like Parsnips ?? I love them!
1 Pound of Potatoes, peeled or unpeeled if you like and chopped
1 Pound Parsnips, peeled and chopped. ( I buy organic so I do not peel)
2/3 cup mixture of cream milk and cream
2-3 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons chopped scallions
Salt and pepper to taste
- Place the potatoes and parsnips in a large pot cover with cold water. Boil until fork tender.
- Drain the potatoes and parsnips well, then mash with milk, cream and butter.
- Mix in the scallions and add salt and pepper to taste
Enjoy – Melissa
