Colourful Irish Phrases

This is an invaluable collection of phrases, some still used daily, others almost forgotten, that illustrated just how rich and lyrical Irish can be.

The Irish language has made a huge contribution to the English language as it's spoken in Ireland and beyond. Micheál Ó Conghaile's 'Colourful Irish Phrases' is a small compendium of characteristic phrases that will alert the reader to the unmistakable difference between our native language and English. Even the most basic words are expressed so differently. Please in Irish is más é do thoil é (if it is your will), and thanks becomes go raibh maith agat (may you receive good).There are many phrases that when translated, word for word, they sound different, unusual and sometimes funny. But above all, they are rich and deeply rooted. Visitors to Ireland who want to get some notion of our native identity will find these phrases both instructive and revealing. Topics covered range across subjects as diverse as insults and put-downs, being human and the gift of the gab.

You can't beat this book - for the price and the small, yet concise and relevant content. Learn how to tell time, order food, go through customs, as well as greetings and social conversations.

Excerpt from Mion-Ċaint: An Easy Irish Phrase Book; Compiled for the Gaelic League It is not a rule. It is a natural law of Irish arti culation. That law is as vigorous now in the spoken Irish as ever it was. It was not made by scholars, nor by bards, nor by grammarians. It belongs by nature to the language. It must be admitted that the thought of introducing it into the spelling of the words was a magnificent thought. It has been a most fortunate thing for us and for our language that the ears of our fathers were so good, and that they gave us the result in black and white. Had they not done so, and had our language ceased to be spoken without any person's having called attention to that law, the knowledge of its existence would have been lost.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
