Colcannon is traditionally made from mashed potatoes, kale or cabbage, butter, salt, and pepper. It can contain other ingredients such as milk, cream, leeks, onions, chives, garlic, boiled ham or Irish bacon. At one time it was a cheap, year-round staple food, though it is usually eaten in Autumn/Winter, when kale comes into season.
Welsh cawl cennin, etymologically identical to colcannon, means "leek soup", literally "broth (of) leeks." Welsh cawl can also mean "cabbage", but the usual word for "cabbage" is bresych, so the Welsh equivalent of Irish cál ceannfhionn would be bresychen benwen.
Meat Pies are a savory pie with
a filling of meat (i.e. chicken,
beef, rabbit, lamb, game
birds, etc.) with vegetables
and other savory ingredients.

Shepherd’s Pie (a.k.a. Cottage
Pie) is a meat pie traditionally made
with lamb. A variation on this is
made with ground beef. Unlike
standard pies, shepherd's pie does not include a bottom pastry crust.
In early cookery books, the dish was a means of using leftover roasted meat of any kind, and the pie dish was lined with mashed potato as well as having a mashed potato crust on top.
