PS - I do have a pound of dark DME also...add it...or no? Worried about too much "grainy" taste...

The dark DME might be a bit much for an irish ale imo.

How much of the yeast cake did you use?

Havent moved it yet...still bubblin along. Prob move this Sun (4 more days for a total of 15) and im getting mixed reviews about the cake. I know it will be a massive overpitch to use the whole thing but the simplicity of racking the done brew then adding the new wort is appealing...
