Has anyone ever found out what class of an article an old segotia actually is & why it is a form of endearment? Is it an Anglization of summat’ ?

Thanks for sharing that, Growing up I was always refereed to as Ah me aul Segotia by a granduncle of mine (if granduncles are a thing)… I knew it was a compliment because you’d always get called it with a big laugh and smile I just never knew what it really was. He was the biggest Dub fan I knew he was pals with the best of them and brought me to meet the likes of Jimmy Keaveney amongst others. He passed away just before they announced the plans to redevelop the current stadium and I remember going to his grave and telling him about the new plans with the picture from the herald of the scaled model of the new stadium in my hand… this probably belongs in the childhood memories thread, Ah sure he won’t mind which thread its in will ya “Me old Segotia”
