Because it’s March, many people are focusing on St. Patrick’s Day. My daughter attends university in Northern Ireland, and she recently shared some Irish sayings that are well-known. (At least in Ireland.) I shared several on an Author’s Facebook page, but will continue, as it was great fun!
- “About ye!” —How are you?
- “What’s the craic?”—What’s going on? This term is used constantly. It also means great fun.
- “Such a dose.”–What an idiot.
- “Shall we go for a dander?”–Shall we go for a stroll?
- “Full so she was!”—She was drunk.
This photo was taken in Wexford, Ireland. (Yes, that’s my husband and I in the corner!)
Please share your favorite Irish saying in the comments below.
Remember, “What’s the craic?”
