Gaeilgeoir and model Roz Lipsett this week met with Mr Tayto to announce the arrival onto shelves nationwide of a limited edition Tayto Cheese and Onion six-pack designed completely ‘as Gaeilge’. The new Tayto pack pays homage to the retro 1980s design that will be remembered by Tayto lovers everywhere. The taste is the same delicious Cheese and Onion flavour invented by Joe ‘Spud’ Murphy in the mid 1950s that has inspired many other crisp brands worldwide.
Raymond Coyle of Tayto said: “Tayto is incredibly proud to be Irish and with Seachtaine na Gaeilge and St. Patrick’s Day both taking place in March, we thought it would be the perfect time to reintroduce our limited edition, as Gaeilge 6-pack! We are delighted to welcome the Tayto Cheese and Onion design from the 1980s back to the market and are excited to see the reaction it receives from the loyal Tayto fans who would have eaten the crisps all those years ago.”Tayto was established by Joe ‘Spud’ Murphy in 1954 and has been loved and shared by generations ever since. Joe ‘Spud’ Murphy is credited with inventing the first ever cheese and onion flavoured crisps, and the brand name Tayto, has now become synonymous with crisps across Ireland. The special blending of the finest Irish potatoes cooked in the purest sunflower oil proves Tayto to be, by far, Ireland’s favourite crisp brand.Joe ‘Spud’ Ó Murchú is ea a bhunaigh Tayto sa bhliain 1954. Tá na milliúin duine tar éis criospaí Tayto a ithe agus a roinnt le chéile ó shin. Meastar gurbh é Joe ‘Spud’ Ó Murchú an chéad duine a smaoinigh ar bhlas cáise agus oinniúin a chur ar chriospaí. Is ionann criospaí agus Tayto, dar le muintir na hÉireann. Agus cad iad féin? Prátaí Éireannacha den scoth a chócaráiltear i bhfíor-ola lus na gréine. Níl aon amhras ach gurb é Tayto rogha mhuintir na hÉireann i measc na gcriospaí ar fad.
