An bhfuil cead agaam dul chun leithris? new [re: ladymacbeth]  

In reply to:

Bog: in English, means marsh-like ground or slang for toilet/WC).



Coming from the Irish word "bog" meaning soft.

A popular phrase in Irish is "Thog go bhog e", meaning "take it soft" (take it easy). Pronounced "hogue guh vug ay".

Another English expression I only recently found out comes from Irish is "smashing!" (meaning "great!"). It comes from "Is maith e sin", pronounced "smaw ay shing".

Slan libh,

Dara

"Did you know that dreamt is the only word in the English (and I assume it means non-American English) language that ends in 'mt.'



Well, there's also undreamt.

I've always dreamt of owning a klimt.

Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness - and it's all over much too quickly.

Killing in Ireland new [re: Persilot]  

A lot of places in Ireland are called Killsomething. Or to be more accurate, it's usually Killsomeone.

The reason for this is not to celebrate our violent history, but that the Irish word for a small church is "cill", pronounced and anglicised kill. So we've got Kilkenny, Killarney, Kilthomas and Killala. Let's hope that last one doesn't cause offense to Al Qaeda.

I myself tend to be a little nervous whenever I drive through Cill Dara (Kildare), on the basis that if the universe has a sense of humour, I'll probably die in a car accident there some day.

Near us, there's a place with the even more alarming name of Kilcock. Sounds like a lesbian haven. Even worse is the neighbouring townland that rejoices in the KKK friendly name on Kilcoon.

Slan libh,

Dara
