Ah, Google. You know us feckin' gobshites better than we know ourselves.
Having stumbled across a funny definition for an Irish slang term on the search engine, we decided to check out what else they had in their locker.
When we found out, we weren't disappointed. Some of the definitions of our favourite words are absolutely gas and the example sentences they use are even better.
Apparently, the Google dictionary is currently run by the 'Oxford American College Dictionary' so we take our hat off to whoever's job it is to trawl through our extensive Irish slang lexicon.
Which ones have they missed? Let us know in the comments.
Bullshit. Some of the most sophisticated people we know are culchies.
A city-dweller? So a Cork person is jackeen? A Galwegian? News to us.
Pushing a lawnmower around a baldy garden is prime gobshite behaviour.

That's pure gas, Ruthie, you absolute gem.
In that case, we spend our whole feckin' lives being annoyed, frustrated or surprised.

Not to be confused with the aforementioned langer.
Judging by the North American example, you really don't want to use the Irish version over there.
"Though he wasn't an intellectual giant, he was no dope either," said Anto in praise of his trustworthy sidekick Deco.
Nothin' worse than a banjaxed kettle.
We would have gone with 'there's a grand auld stretch in the evenings.'
'On the hop' would also have been accepted.
Straight to the point.
That's the whole shebang now, thanks for reading.
