Irish Lamb Stew

This recipe is taken from the 1980 Milk Calendar. As winter draws on, a rich stew, cooked slowly on the back burner is an ideal dish to serve the family for dinner. The Irish were simmering this stew over peat fires for centuries before it was brought to Canada. The recipe calls for lamb, long a favourite in Ireland and fast gaining popularity over here.
