It’s St Patrick’s Day! For those of you of Irish descent, it means something about snakes and stuff. For those of you who aren’t remotely Irish, it means drinking beer, drinking some more beer, and finishing it off with more beer. Some of it green, sometimes. What better way to celebrate St Paddies than with the most Irish of meal: a single, boiled potato. I kid, I kid.

No, for today, we have a rustic, rich and delicious Beef and Guinness stew, served with champ; mashed potatoes and chopped scallions with butter and milk. Yum! As usual, we’ve had a bit of fun injecting a bit of Oirish flair in to our header images today. Did you spot ‘em all?

Here they are:

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
