Need suggestions--appetizer or finger foods--Irish, or just green!

I admit it: call me a show-off, but I *like* going to potlucks and having everybody go on about my dish as one of the best ones there! And I've developed a bit of a reputation for that at this one monthly group I attend. So now, I need some help upholding it.

The next meeting is in mid-March, and the theme something Irish, or just green. I am stumped. It doesn't have to be really traditional, authentic, old-school Irish, and kitschy is fine. It needs to be finger food, or easy to eat with plastic utensils. I can't cook it there, so it has to travel well. I like to do savory dishes, because a lot of people tend to bring desserts and we often end up with too many of those (although I did a King Cake in February, so that's not a firm rule). I'm not working, and I have plenty of time to cook, so a lengthy prep isn't much of a problem.

I found a cheddar and Guinness dip recipe, but it's too easy to be very interesting. Irish eggrolls with corned beef and cabbage sound good, but they're deep fried, so they'd be cold and greasy by the time I got them there. Beyond that, most every other recipe I've found won't work for one reason or another. I'm just drawing a blank.

Suggestions, please...?
