In a medium saucepan place the potatoes, cover with cold water and add a few pinches of salt. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook until tender about 3 minutes.
While the potatoes are cooking melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until tender about 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
When the potatoes are cooked, drain well. Add the potatoes and the corned beef to the skillet and combine with the onion.
Cook over medium heat until the mixture is golden brown while pressing the mixture into the pan with a spatula to compact the mixture. Continue cooking for 15-20 minutes.
In another skillet fry the eggs.
Top the hash with the fried eggs and sprinkle with the chopped parsley.
