If you wish to eat it as a meat, remove it from its cooking water, cool it and put in the fridge. Next day, place in clean water and bring to a low simmer and let cook very slowly to remove more salt.
If you tried to cook that puppy in very little water, you could also place it in clean water and soak overnight to help remove some of the salt. Corned beef is salty to begin with, but somtimes you do get an extra-salty one--luck of the draw, I guess.
Or, portion it up and use for seasoning potatoes (hash), cabbage or cabbage and potatoes (bubbles and squeak). Slice thinly and use in sandwiches with lots of vegetables, non-salty vegetables.
