10 reasons why Tesco's Irish section is a *lifeline* for Irish emigrants

DON’T LEAVE US, TESCO IRISH SECTION.

There's an Irish food section in Tesco.... #WinningAtLife

SINCE 2011, TESCO has been keeping Irish emigrants in the UK fed and watered with its Irish food sections.

The supermarket stocks products like Tayto, Club Orange, Barry’s Tea and Jacobs biscuits in many of its UK branches, but it seems that the days of nipping to Tesco for “proper tea” may be numbered.

The Irish Post is reporting that the supermarket is due to axe the Irish food section from over 200 of its stores, citing a need to “simplify their ranges”.

Noooooo.

You can’t do this, Tesco.

After all, you’ve been a lifeline to so many Irish emigrants over the years.

Look how excited people get when they find Irish food in Tesco!

Where the hell are people supposed to go now when they’re craving beverages from the Old Country?

Are you telling us that we’re going to have to make do without Mi-Wadi and Club Lemon? Is that what you’re saying?

What about when we need our fix of Barry’s Tea?

This is all part of a grand conspiracy to get us to start drinking PG Tips, isn’t it?Β 

You can’t just cut our Tayto supply without any warning!

TAYTO WITHDRAWAL IS REAL.

WHERE WILL WE GET OUR CIDONA NOW?

:’( :’( :’(

We *depended* on you for biscuits

Honestly, living away from home is hard enough without you going and doing this

</3

Please reconsider, Tesco.

Don’t force our Mams to send us more care packages.

Let Irish people have their #tasteofhome
