Other possible Irish foods that could be included in the article[edit]

I'm not enough of an expert to seriously contribute to this article so I though I'd put a few suggestions of things that might or might not be good candidates to be included in the list of 'Irish foods'. Someone with greater expertise might decide if they are candidates worth including.

Dropped Scones
Yellow Man
Nan Barry Teabags
Treacle Bread
Jacob's fig rolls
Potato Bread

Ulster dishes, and terms for dishes, seem to be overlooked in this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:21, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Your edits have not positively shown that there is a significant difference in the food of Ulster compared to the other three provinces, nor that the names are exclusive to Ulster. I think a table with regional name differences would be a good idea though.--Dmol (talk) 16:48, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Aye, that seems like a good idea! For example, a real 'Ulster term' for fish and chips is 'fish supper', a term mainly used throughout the North and County Donegal. A very popular soft drink (or 'mineral') across the North and County Donegal is Irn-Bru, produced in the Central Belt of southern Scotland by A.G. Barr Ltd.. Perhaps all this could be added to such a list or to an expanded 'Irish cuisine' article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:08, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Shepherds/Cottage pie.[edit]

I took out Shepherds / Cottage Pie and used the edit note that it is not traditional, or even common in Ireland. Its article does not even mention Ireland has having a version of this pie. My edit was reverted by a user who claims it is common and traditional. In my 25 years living in Ireland I never saw it once. Can anyone confirm it even exists, and if so, what locations or regions is it common. Is there any evidence of it being traditional.--Dmol (talk) 04:57, 13 May 2012 (UTC)

I've been eating Shepherd's Pie/Cottage Pie with my family and friends at home and in cafés, bars and restaurants all over Ireland for longer than the above editor has been living in Ireland. Here is just a sample of probably hundreds of references available on the web, which show that it is both common and traditional. I haven't even looked in my Irish cookbooks yet.

Irish-Chinese Food[edit]

Time to start a section on Chinese food in Ireland? Had never eaten anything like it and while takes some influence from America or other European styles of Chinese food it has to be unique. Curries, 3-in-1s, Spice Bags, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SGlennonB (talkcontribs) 00:59, 12 December 2015 (UTC)


Let me guess, apple strudel and floating island. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:14, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
