Aaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! IRISH ROLL. The finest bacon your ever likely to encounter. And because it was cured in the traditional and proper way, it tasted fantastic, and the fat would melt in your mouth. I haven't seen any for over 40 years. Does it still exist? Is there a pork-butcher out there somewhere who still buys his bacon from a traditional irish source in the far west of Ireland? If there is, can someone tell me. I have a fast jet standing by.





Re- Mr Schofield's comment... Maybe you could try a fast car like a DeLorean so you can go back to the future, oh and don't forget your 11d for a pound of the glorious stuff.
