Inserting a “curse” within another word…

Just on the inner city people moving out to the wild suburbs.

My Grandfather used to always tell us the story of when he and his family were moving out of the tenements on Henrietta St to Cabra. He said all the neighbours on Henrietta St came out to wave them off, most of them in tears. Nobody ventured too far in them days. It was like they were moving to Australia and to the locals on Henrietta St they might as well have been. It would have been 1933. I always found that hilarious, neighbors crying waving you off as you moved a 20 min walk away


#197

What about threatening people with the last part of their sentence?

Example

“I’m just going for a few pints”
“I’ll bleeding few pints ye”

Is this unique to Dublin?
It works with anything, try it there :joy:
