    Potato farl is part of an Ulster Fry… not an English Fry. Ulster is in Ireland.

    • Technicalities

      You’re right they aren’t English Fry but the Ulster thing is open for debate really isn’t it depending on your definition of Ireland. Some people would strongly refute it being in Ireland

        Refute Ulster being in Ireland? REALLY?

      • disqus_mwMYndY3It

        Try tell that to people from Monaghan, Cavan or Donegal…

    Potato farls are Irish and a VERY necessary part of the deal!
    Also, they help fill the requirement to have potatoes with every meal! (see point 15)
