I found this recipe @ "The Corner House" in Schull, Ireland. For the tourists when the staff serves the Colcannon they sing:
"Did you every eat Colcannon...
That's made from ticken cream...
Wit greens and scallions blended eyn...
'Tis a pitture in your dreams?"

    I used just 1 scallion and a very small onion. Also, half of the butter and it turned out a treat. - 8/31/13
