To the untrained eye, Ireland is merely a place of leprechauns and rain. And how wrong they are.
Ireland has many delicacies and treasures that may not have made their way across the Emerald Isle, but fear not, we are here to educate you.
They were, are and will remain to be our number one creation, especially with their come back. No one does a key change like them.
2. Chicken fillet roll
A humble creation and a modest meal. Throw in some garlic mayo and onions and you’re winning.
3. Joe Duffy
Can that man handle a phone call. Extra points if you can sing along to the theme tune to perfection.
Sometimes confused with bacon, rashers are the better version of bacon. None of that streaky shite, please and thank you.
5. Making a meal out of beans
Beans and toast, beans and chips, beans and egg … Anything with beans and you’ve got yourself a dinner.
6. Rich tea biscuits and butter
A completely normal and delicious snack to have with your tea.
7. Tayto crisps
Specifically a Tayto crips sandwich. Part of your five-a-day, so I hear.
8. Marty Morrissey
A revered Irish sports broadcaster, who always seems to be up for the craic. Gotta love him.
9. Taco fries
Carbs, meat and cheese. Is there really anything better?
10. Black pudding
This is not, what someone once referred to as, “blood sausage”. This is a delight that you eat with your breakfast.
11. Kerrygold butter
Smothered on soda bread, mashed potatoes, warm toast … on anything really.
12. Gay Bryne
A living legend, if there ever was one. Remember the condom demonstration?
Perhaps the original Westlife, they paved the way for choreographed dancing boy-bands.
Ireland just wouldn’t be the same without these things of beauty.
