Why donít they just import the food from Ireland? Probably cheaper since it doesnít need a sea crossing.
There has been unrestricted access to Ireland for a very long time, if it had been cheaper the trade would have developed already.....

In fact the cost of living is between 15% - 20% high than the UK and average GDP per capita is about 40% higher. Ireland is not a cheap country. NI is to Ireland, what France/Germany is to Switzerland when it comes to shopping.
