St. Patrick's food articles

Irish people don't eat corned beef, have Irish butter instead. Grass-fed apparently, what with all the rain and grass, plus European butters have higher milkfat anyway.

As for the corned beef, the Irish valued cows for labor and milk -- hmm, should compare them to the Indians, not the Jews, as it later does -- and pig is the main Irish meat. "Corned beef" was a colonial export. Though Irish *immigrants* to the US started being able to afford meat, and bought a different corned beef... from their kosher neighbors in New York City.
