Roastie from the postie: How a first class spud crossed Irish Sea

posted in: Delivery, Food, Left Field, Letters, Odd | 0

It was a food delivery to home with a difference after a first class spud made it from England to Londonderry in the post.

A lone Maris Piper potato made it all the way across the Irish Sea, with nothing but a stamp on it.

It could have been a mash-up, but duly arrived in one piece at its destination on Saturday.

A postman called to the home of the Bradley family in Oakbridge Park telling them: “Parcel – take it or leave it”.

Traditionally a staple of the Irish diet, the spud was sent by Dermot Bradley’s sister, Edel, from Birmingham as a thank you for helping organise her potato-themed wedding.

Dermot said he was astonished when he saw the delivery with a difference.
