no problem piccolina. i know that you probably wouldn't have known so there's no need to apologize, but the reference that people have told you that, i assume free irish people, is what gets me. my family is from a border counties in the north, on the free side - saorstat eirann, and has experienced many of the things that create hatred towards ulster unionists, especially black and tans. really, it's all about money and power, and the cruel ways of obtaining both.

again, let's get back to ishbel's wonderful recipe.

HMMMM - didn't mean to start a sectarian war here, BT....

And, in geographic terms, I'm sorry to say that Ireland is considered one of the British Isles (just not Great Britain!!!)

ok, the last thing i'll say on this, there are lots of small islands in and around england and scotland. those are british isles. ireland is it's own island.

the victors get to write history, and therefore (quite often mistakenly) get to define educational tools like geography. the romans were infamous for "re-defining" both for instance, to the great disservice of all mankind. just ask the mongols and much of asia, persia, and germania.

that is why i included "tiocfaidh ar la", or "our time will come", in irish.

ok, enough war, let's eat some welsh lamb.

happy st. david's day to everyone.

As I seem to be pissing everyone off today.....

All I can say is: This was a thread about St DAVID's DAY and Wales. Nothing about Ireland, nothing about the British Isles.... just a dish for St David's Day

ishbel, first of all, you didn't piss me off. imo, you made a quite common error. i just expressed my opinion, initially politely about it, and thanked you for the recipe. the conversation took off, pretty much without you, and i again expressed my opinions on things, trying to avoid "getting into it" or stealing your thread.
however, i would have expected someone who has the same kind of pride in their heritage, a heritage so close to my own, to at least understand if in fact you don't agree. you have always been particular about specifying the proper way of describing and understanding things of scotland, my posts were in practice no different from that.
i hope you aren't going to leave the site simply because you are feeling badly about small misunderstandings.
there's been no offense taken on my part; i hope none on yours.

Your recipe sounds so good! Wish we could get lamb here, but the closest place we can find it is about 40 miles away, and then it's extremely pricey. We can't get fresh figs either.
