In the 1800s, the Irish ate a lot of potatoes and pig (all pig: bacon, sausages, hams, etc).
From 1845 to 1852, the Great Famine occurred, when the potato crops were wiped out which left pig (and sometimes mutton).
In my family, corned beef was an immigrant’s meal…a cheap cut of meat with inexpensive cabbage made a hearty, filling meal…
