It is also associated with Saint Patrick's Day when Irish Americans eat a traditional meal of corned beef and cabbage. According to the History Channel, while cabbage has long been a traditional food item for the Irish, corned beef serving as a substitute for Irish bacon first became traditional in the late 1800s. Irish immigrants living in New York City's Lower East Side learned about this cheaper alternative to bacon from their Jewish neighbors. From Wikipedia

That'd be the point.. it's an American tradition.. this particular cousin lives in Dublin some of the time and has some very funny views on tourists' expectations, that's all. ^___^
