It is a traditional Irish dish mostly from Dublin.

Peel the potatoes as thinly as possible. If they are large cut them into two or three pieces.
Place a layer of chopped onions in the bottom of a heavy pot with a good close-fitting lid.
Layer all the other ingredients, giving each layer a grind or so of freshly-ground pepper.
Add half a litre of water to the pot. Bring the water to the boil, then reduce the heat at once, cover tightly, and barely simmer for two to five hours or cook in a heavy casserole pot in a very low oven at 250 F.
The longer and slower the cooking, the better.
Serve with white soda bread and\or potatoes to mop up the soup.
