Mr Tayto was on hand to bring craic to the streets of Dublin with his green suit and a band of drummers for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations.
My Tayto warmed up festival-goers with plenty of pre-parade shenanigans, as well as bringing Coláiste Tayto to South King Street.
Coláiste Tayto was part of St. Patrick’s Festival’s Street Theatre programme, consisting of 15 minute fun-filled, Irish language sessions all within the confines of Tayto and the festival’s own hedge school.
Audiences had the chance to pick up a cúpla focal from lively tutors under the supervision of Mr. Tayto.
Tayto redesigned its iconic bags of cheese and onion crisps in the run up to Ireland’s national day, by changing them to a Dual language patriotic green, white and gold design.
One lucky competition winner was also flown home for the festivities, following an on-pack promotion.
Finally, a snap of Mr. Tayto was chosen for the global snapshot story meaning everyone in the world who has snapchat had the chance to see the iconic mascot in his festive green suit.
