Could you be a little more specific?  I always thought that Irish
Portatoes was another name for white potatoes.

Do you mean actual potatoes or do you mean the candy
called Irish Potatoes, which uses mashed potato, 
powdered sugar, and coconut and is shaped like a potato
and rolled in cocoa and studded with pine nuts for the
"eyes"?

What we consider Irish potatoes are sliced peeled potatoes fried in a
bit of butter or oil with sliced peppers and onions.  Yummmm!

Everywhere I've seen or heard it, "Irish potatoes" was simply another
name for white potatoes as opposed to sweet potatoes.  Did you have a
more specific Irish potato dish in mind?  if you can describe it,
I might have a recipe.

The recipe seeker may be looking for the candy which contains cream
cheese, a bit of potato, sugar, perhaps coconut, rolled into balls and 
dusted in cinnamon.  We see them in PA around St. Pats.

2 boxes Conf. sugar                1 8oz pkg cream cheese
2 tbl vanilla                      1 7oz pkg. coconut
cinnamon

Soften cream cheese, mix all ingredients except cinnamon. Shape into
balls and roll in cinnamon. Refrigerate. Makes 3-4 lb candy. This is my
favorite candy. Bob
