Ireland: Chocolate Potato Cake

IRELAND!! EIRE!! The land of green, leprechauns, Guinness, shamrocks, potatoes, and awesome accents! (Just digging up the old stereotypes.)

My first travel abroad experience was in Northern Ireland (which I know is different than the Republic of Ireland, don’t kill me), but it is very similar and a whole host of ways, given its kind of a mix of Irish Catholic and Protestant people, all with Irish accents, Irish foods and culture, and Gaelic can be found in both places….I lived in Northern Ireland for a semester in college, but also traveled to the Republic multiple times, and the only noticeable difference I saw was Northern Ireland flew Union Jacks a lot more, and had lots of remnants of the Troubles, and people called it Londonderry instead of Derry, okay, to an American like me, they are very similar! 1,222 more words
