The end of the harvest in Ireland was always celebrated with a meatless meal on October 31st, known as All Hallow Eve (Halloween), and colcannon is just one of the many potato dishes devised not just to feed but to satisfy. Traditionally, it was served with a pool of melted butter in the centre, but I find it rich enough without it. Well, maybe just a little dob.
