A Wee Biteen Of Irish Slang


I love this word. It’s like something ya say while eating and just after hearing good news! You slur the word out with a half full mouth of traditional Irish Cabbage which  is …savage!


Down in Cork (where this ambitious your fool author is from)he’d be known as a Langer! Cork Slang that means you’re a fool but you’re usually  a friendly fool.

We even made a bit of Ceol (Irish for Music) about this slang word.                                                         Check it out here http://youtu.be/1m9SsNxbZxM
