Obama will get a LOAD of Irish food today, but no Tayto

It’ll all probably be destroyed though…

BARACK OBAMA WILL be given a load of Irish food today, as the US President celebrates St Patrick’s Day.

Bord Bia will present Obama with a selection of food including “premium grass-fed Irish beef”, Ballymaloe country relish, Barry’s Tea, Kerrygold, Lily O’Brien’s chocolates, and Keogh’s crisps (which we’re sure are just as nice as Tayto).

A full list of the foods included can be found here.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny will also present Obama with the traditional bowl of shamrock – which will be almost immediately destroyed by the US Secret Service.

Unfortunately, the food is likely to meet the same fate - due to security reasons.

On a related note, we’re starving right now.
