Friends enjoying a weekend eating of the barbecue. iStock

It’s here! Already! Memorial Day weekend is upon us. The chance of the first big hurrah for the summer and the time to get the barbecue fired up. Of course, this weekend is also an opportunity to remember the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces and celebrate their acheivements and bravery.

So kick back, fire up the barbecue and enjoy some of these delicious recipes from Irish chefs and from Guinness themselves.

Happy holiday!
