    Not sure about English, but Irish sausages are widely available, at least on the northwest and southwest sides, and are similar.

    1) Winston's Sausage (4701 W 63rd St, Chicago; 7961 West 159th Street in Tinley Park). You can also purchase Winston's products at Gaelic Imports, on Austin, just south of Lawrence, in Chicago. In addition to the Irish sausages, Winston's now makes a Scottish sausage w/beef, rather than pork.

    2) Happy Foods (6783 N Northwest Hwy, Chicago; 6415 N Central Ave, Chicago), sells Diamond's Brand Irish sausages.

    3) Jack and Pats, (10717 Ridgeland Ave, Chicago Ridge, IL 60415). I think they make their own brand.

    4) O'Connor's Market (7280 West Devon, Chicago). I think they also make their own.

    I'd also suspect that some grocery stores in Forest Park migh carry Irish sausage.

    There's a wonderful little Scottish import shop on the west side of Austin just south of Lawrence (alas, the name and address escapes me right now) from which I've purchased scrumptuous fresh, homemade Cornish pasties, meat pies, AND imported bangers (frozen, but still raw).

    Perhaps my mind will soon cycle off of power-saving mode or this will strike a familiar chord with another LTHer.

    Cheers,
    Wade

    There is an Irish import store w/ groceries south of Addison on Southport. Tara, I think. They have your sausages. Also, the Osco and Jewel on Southport have small Irish sections, for the contractors and significant local bar employee population.

    Wade,

    The shop you're talking about is Gaelic Imports. It used to be owned by a Scotsman named Hudson, now its Irish-owned (full disclosure: one of the owners is my next door neighbor.)

    I'm also in need of some bangers for next weekend's St. Paddy's Day festivites. Is this shop still open and worth the drive out west?

    When you say "burbs," did you have any particular segment of the 'burbs in mind? If you were thinking north, you might want to check with British Accents. They have a wide range of foods from the UK, including a number of frozen meat products. Might we worth checking with them.

    Ream's in Elburn had bangers in their freezer case. Mom bought some for my brother, who developed an affinity to bangers after a trip to Ireland.
