It’s a long and sorted story that lead me to pick Ireland as my next destination and if I’ve learned anything from NZ, it’ll be that I’ll be picking up some interesting words along the way. Anyway, below are interesting phrases/words/expressions that I’m learning from my travels:
craic: fun/good times
how you keeping: how are you?
hurley: stick used for hurling
hurling: a sport that’s a cross between field hockey and lacrosse
laser card: debit card
shift: make out
sliotar: the ball used for hurling
thanks a mill: just another way to say thanks but it’s very heavily used.
true blood: a Dubliner whose parents and grandparents are all originally from Dublin and not from the countryside.
