Is the traditional Irish way of eating potato, peeled on the dinner plate while on the fork, still popular?

Update:

I am asking this on Yahoo in Europe so please do not answer if you're a Yank from thousands of miles away who does not know the answer and thinks you are funny

    Some people still do that but they usually peel them on a side plate the size of a saucer

    No. Nowadays they eat raw potatoes out of the ground. All they farm is potatoes. I’m kidding. I ain’t stupid. Donno.

    I doubt anyone eats potatoes like that - it's certainly not a “traditional Irish way” of eating them.

    If potatoes are peeled then they’re peeled in the normal way - not on a dinner plate or while on a for - the'y be held in the hand and peeled with a knife or a potato peeler- they way people do, you know?

    The they's be cooked.
