Actually, if a Saints Day falls on a Friday during lent, you are allowed to eat meat. The Bible calls it the "Code of Canon Law".. you get a dispensation for that day as long as you take on some other form of "penance" : )

I have never heard of Irish people eating corned beef and cabbage, before today, but we would eat Bacon and cabbage, also known as bubble and squeak!!
Bubble and Squeak!! LOL I love that.. and no corned beef?? Oh, wait, substitue the corned beef for a big pile of bacon? Even better! So if the "flatulence" from the cabbage doesnt kill you, you'll have a heartattack.. Ah I love being Irish!

Nah, Irish bacon is more like ham or Canadian Bacon, unfortunately!

A proper Irish dinner is Potatoe, cabbage and cooked ham with white sauce!
(Bacon and cabbage it's more commonly known over here as)
That's proper Irish food
Instead of ham, my da's irish family had smoked butt ! Your right, the Irish side will not eat corned beef, they say its as irish as pizza hut is italian.

The local Bishop has to grant a dispensation. That has happened here where the Bishop would grant a dispensation, but the Bishop of a neighboring diocese did not. Personally, I wouldn't eat meat on a Friday in Lent, dispensation or not.
