Default No Corned Beef on St. Pat's Day?

Just out of curiousity what are all the Irish Catholics planning to eat on St. Patrick's Day? I know it's usually corned beef and cabbage but since the holiday falls on a Friday during Lent I was just wondering what the substitution is.

I saw something on TV the other day, can't remember what news it was, but they said that Roman catholics are allowed to eat corned beef and cabage on St. Patty's Day!

A lot of the parties have been moved to Thursday or Saturday ... and if you live in Canada (and probably other places, too), you don't have to abstain from meat on Fridays.

As for me, our party is on Thursday and I don't like corned beef and cabbage but they're going to have Irish Stew and something called Colcannon, which I guess is a kind of potato dish. It's a buffet so I'm sure I'll find enough to eat plus free green beer!!!

It's all up to the Bishop in the diocese in which you live. Ours has given dispensation to all who wish to partake in the normal Irish fare (If you wish to). Then it is up to you to choose a day to abstain from meat. For me, I'll just hit the local fish fry. I can't stand corned beef!

The school where I work did the corned beef and cabbage yesterday. On Friday we are doing the usual Fish Fryday.

The bad news is that the diocese I live in (Camden, NJ) is hard core and will not give a dispensation. The good news is I am not Catholic, although I do have O'Flanagan forebearers.

I will have to check the menu at the daycare! I would love something with corned beef! In fact, I have a GREAT recipe that is simply just corned beef and mashed potatoes mixed together. Mmmmmm.

I did hear this morning about dispensations. I guess there's always a way around things. I'm not a fan of corned beef unless it's in the form of a Reuben. Good thing I'm not Irish.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all who celebrate!

Special dispensation had been granted for the New York City dioceses.
