Irish people are creatures of habit and it seems we can’t pass up the chance to scoff a hearty fry-up, even thousands of miles away from home.
New research has found that half of Irish people have sneaked sausages onto a plane bound for a far away destination.
The research conducted by Denny Sausages found that 50pc of Irish travellers slyly slip the country’s breakfast favourite into their suitcases before jetting off on holiday or returning to their adopted homes abroad.
A security spokesperson from Dublin Airport revealed that although there is no issue bringing Irish sausages though security at the airport’s Terminal 1 and 2, sausage lovers could be nabbed at the other end.
“There’s absolutely no problem bring sausages through Dublin security, but they could be taken off you at the other side,” he confirmed.
Getting caught with sausages and other food products including meat dairy, fish, and shellfish as well as certain plants and vegetables outside of the EU could cause severe delays and those who try could face a fine and even prosecution.
Meanwhile, Irish people might want to brush up on their table manners before heading on that aforementioned trip abroad as the study also found that 23 per cent have admitted to eating a sausage while on the toilet.
