One of the most confiscated items in Dublin Airport is rather surprising
Who would have thought?
When travelling through an airport, like Dublin Airport, most of us know at this stage that you cannot bring some items such as liquids above 100ml or any sharp objects in your hand luggage.
The last thing we would expect to be banned from bringing is mustard, particularly the Guinness Wholegrain Mustard variety. But, it turns out not only are you not allowed to bring that through security, but it's also one of the most confiscated goods going through Dublin Airport.
A DAA spokesperson explained the reason: "Mustard is covered by the EU liquids and gels rules, which have been in place since 2006. See details here and here. Rules are set by the EU and we implement them."
If these are the most confiscated items in Dublin, then it got us thinking - what about Cork and Shannon?
Unfortunately, their answers weren't as exciting. Cork said it's over-sized liquids and knives, while Shannon Airport said they couldn't share any information regarding confiscated goods.
We were really hoping it would be Ballymaloe Relish or Clonakilty Pudding.
