Irish Curry is basically a fusion of Irish stew, curry spices, and Guinness beer.
It is served as a stew in the pubs.
Its a combination of traditional, lamb or chicken stew. Fresh apples, dried fruits such as raisins may be included. Onions sauteed with curry powder and hot chili peppers are added. Dark Guinness beer is added. The stew is very thick. It can be served on rice.

There is no Indian Curry.

The dish that the rest of the world calls "Curry" doesn't actually exist in India.

In India, "kari" powder is a mixture of ground spices used in cooking. It's actual contents vary from household to household. It's this mixture that was used to create "curry". Specifically, by English travelers returning home from India wishing to recreate the spiced food they enjoyed abroad. So, they mixed their own "kari" powder and used it to create a stew with it that they served over rice. They called this "Curry".

So while the ingredients and inspiration for "curry" are clearly Indian, it's not an Indian dish. It's in that category of food alongside "Japanese Hibachi Steakhouse" "Spaghetti & Meatballs" and "General Tso's Chicken" - inspired by another cuisine, but not created by it.

(I guess linguistically speaking, this would make the American dish, Chili, a "curry" since it too relies on a mixture of ground spices to make a stew...?)
