Irish Slang

It's often remarked that the best English in the world is spoken by the Irish, but that is patently untrue. The language spoken by the Irish is barely comprehensible to English speakers from other parts of the world.

So full of colloquialisms obscurities is our version of the language that an outsider would probably need a degree in linguistics before they would understand what the hell we're trying to say.

In the absence of that, let us be of some assistance to you. Here is the IrishAbroad guide to Irish slang.
