One of the delicious Irish dishes that you can make is Rutabaga Casserole.
Rutabagas and turnips are very similar, with rutabagas being a bit larger and yellow inside instead of white. Rutabagas have a slightly milder, sweeter flavor than turnips, but they also have slightly more carbs per serving.

Bring to a boil; cover and simmer about 30-35 minutes or until tender. Drain well and mash with a potato masher. Add the butter, salt and pepper.
