“Pain in me hoop”.
“Banjaxed”.
“She’s a fûckin’ ride”.
“Give it over, will ya?”
“A shot, he missed, he must be fûckin’ pissed”.

“A shot, he missed, he must be fûckin’ pissed”.

Reminds me of the hill singing ‘he’s fat, he’s round, his arse is on the ground, it’s Colm O rourke’ to Leitrims favourite son…

Also, Brian Kerr during the penalty shoot out a few minutes ago, ‘he just stepped up and hit it, ger out of dat…’

I genuinely have no idea what language you are speaking.

Are you sure you aren’t trying to pollute the purity of our fair city with bogtrotter Meathisms?


#77

Ya never heard of a bowler? A tea leaf?

Bowler - ugly girl
Tea leaf - thief

Must be a localized blanchero slang.

Try googling


#78

Thanks for translation. No. Had never heard of either.

Blanchero/Meath is, pretty much the same thing these days, no?


#79

No blanch is in Dublin meath is in mordor. No?

Anyone else ever hear of the expression bowler or am I on my tobler?

My da used to refer to the dog as a bowler at times, I presume that’s what was intended in referring to the not so pretty ladies…
