Fill a Crock-Pot with potatoes and veggies for a filling dinner you'll love

Ireland is famous for it's many wonderful cultural and culinary contributions to the world. In Ireland, the humble potato is treated with reverence. Far from being an afterthought on the side of the plate, the potato can be a thing of real beauty.
As the bright summer days start to mellow and cool gently towards autumn, we start to seek out recipes that will nourish and warm us. Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle for a reason, and those rolling fields and hills of deep, lush green are due in part to the rain which falls frequently; meaning that hunkering down in front of a peat fire (okay, or the TV) with a bowl of Dublin Coddle is a deservedly popular pastime.
