What traditional Irish food is eaten on St Patrick's Day?
Dublin Coddle is one of the most popular recipes made for St. Patrick's Day. It's a layered dish consisting of bacon, pork sausage, and potatoes. Next is Irish Stew which is a little different than the stew I usually make for my family. It consists of lamb, potatoes, onions, leeks, and carrots.
What are the colors for St Patrick's Day?
Obviously, the color GREEN! The color green represents support for the independence. It's also the official color for the Irish flag. The color also represents the Emerald Isle, which is so beautiful.
