Irish people are well known for travelling and with a lot of people off to Australia and Canada in recent years we're more scattered around the world than ever before. But once we go abroad – sadly, not only do we have to leave our families behind, but a lot of Irish things we're so used to.

Like, y'know, Tayto sandwiches. (It's just not the same trying to ram a bag of Lays into some fancy Italian ciabatta, trust us.)
