Just bought 2 3 -4 lb corned beefs @$1.79/lb. So I now have 3 in the freezer for later and one in fridge for St. Patty day.

I always buy extra to freeze for later as well. The store only had two this time, but one extra is better than none.

My home made corned beef is made from a sirloin tip, which should make it perfect for slicing into ultra-thin deli meat. I have three store-brand corned beef briskets, weighing in at 3, 4, and 4.5 lbs, approximate weight.

I have a son who will be home, and he loves corned beef. He usually ends up taking about half a roast, leaving the other half to be had between my DW and myself. I may have a daughter and SIL in the house this weekend as well.

All I ask of the two briskets that I'm going to cook up, is to leave me enough to make some home made corned beef hash. Yum.

So, you prefer to make it with leftovers. What difference does the proportions of ingredients make if someone chooses to have it, made fresh, with corned beef.

You are certainly able to do what you prefer, but OP asked how to prepare Cabbage, not potatoes. Colcannon, while containing cabbage(or kale, or any green)is a potato dish.

I guess you missed this part of the OPs post, "Or, really, any recommendations on how to do it all"
