Would all beef imported fom Ireland be grass-fed?

Found some in local supermarket (Spain) at a relatively cheap price, about 7 euros a kg, cut up into steaks. Bought a tray of about 1/2 kg and cooked and ate them at home. Not the tenderest steaks, but the price was good. So my question is, knowing the climate and geography of Ireland, is all the beef there grass-fed?

My mum comes from a dairy farm in county cork. The cows are given pellets to eat as well as grass. The male cows were fed more grain to fatten them up to be sold as meat.

Don't know Ireland, but in South America most beef (about 95%) is grass fed ad finished, from supermarket meat to the finest churrascarias (especially the churrascarias!). And most sheep meat is grass fed too.
