Place the potatoes, cabbage and spring onions into a large sauce pan, fill with water, and bring to the boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
Drain the vegetables and place into a large bowl. Mash the potatoes and vegetables with the butter using a fork until the mixture is chunky, pouring in cream gradually as you mash. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
Prepared this with my Irish Steaks for dinner this evening...kind of plain tasting, but good. I added some chopped bacon and used sour cream for the milk/cream to mash potatoes. Will make again and add more onion and black pepper... - 29 Mar 2012
