Tayto donates protective equipment, boxes of crisps and chocolate to health workers

IRELAND'S FAVOURITE brand of crisp has become the latest Irish company to do their part in helping health workers stay safe as they battle the coronavirus on the front lines.

The makers of Jameson Irish Whiskey are producing hand gel for the HSE, O'Neills sportswear are manufacturing hospital scrubs, and secondary schools and companies are donating all of their stock of PPE gear to local hospitals and nursing homes.

Now Tayto are also providing the extraordinarily hard-working front line staff with Personal Protective Gear-- as well as massive boxes of cheese & onion crisps and chocolate Easter bunnies just in time for the end of Lent.

Tayto's theme park, Tayto Park (for anyone not Irish reading this, yes, that is a thing, and it's brilliant) took to Twitter earlier today to show what they would be donating to front-line staff in Ireland, saying:

"Tayto Park is delighted to be able to donate some protective personal equipment for our front-line staff.


"We threw in some treats to say thank you for all your hard work".

While Tayto Park remains closed to the public, some of the zookeepers have still been busy-- the park's zoo animals need to be fed and cared for, and this month alone they welcomed five adorable baby ring-tailed lemurs-- including two sets of twins.

Baby Lemurs 💙💕 Tayto Park is delighted to announce that we have had 5 baby lemurs born this month. It was a busy month for our keepers as the first set of twin ring-tailed lemurs were born to Dolly on the 5th of March, with a second baby lemur born a week after to mum Charlie, while another set of lemur twins arrived just last week to mother Diana. All Mum's and new births are doing well and are settling into their new home. Although the gender is still unknown at this time, we need your help to name our newest arrivals.
