A bit o' Dooblinese.....

Some folks in another thread were talking about the Dublin "needle" that's being built, which I hadn't heard about, so I looked it up....and I came across a couple of hiliarious sites about Dublin-speak/Dublinese. Omg, they have nicknames for everything, I wouldn't be able to keep up!

Feel free too add your own!


some "monumental" nicknames for city sites:

Dublinese: "Anto and that bird were down the buzzer having a couple of scoops and they got blottoed and they were wearing the face of each other."

Man, if I ever go to Ireland I'm going to need a translator!
