What the Irish Ate Before Potatoes - Bon Appétit
on the history of Irish cuisine -- mostly milk and butter, and notably "bog butter":
And the Irish didn’t like their butter just one way: from the 12th century on, there are records of butter flavored with onion and garlic, and local traditions of burying butter in bogs.
