    Save the Spud Campaign

    Bord Bia have issued a warning, they say that the humble spud is not being loaded into our shopping trolleys as much as it used to be. It's being replaced by other carbs, rice, pasta, couscous & whatever you're having yourself. Is this the end of the road for the potato? We say NO!

    We have some potato lovers on the line to John this morning, Sarah McCann, Niamh Boylen, Carol O'Rourke & Susan Lindsay.
