I'm wearing a shirt that says Slainte and has some sort of Celtic symbol on it. I had to look up the pronunciation online because I always forget how to say it.

My manager wasn't aware there was a separate language spoken by the Irish. "I thought they just had an accent - I didn't know they spoke another language!" How is it possible not to have known of Gaelic's existence?

Is it Pogue Mahone? I'd always heard that's where The Pogues got their name from. Knowing (what little) what I know about Gaelic, it's probably spelled some really bizarre way.

Our network drives are down at work, which means there is very little I can do right now. It SUCKS.

Here you go:

The name 'Pogues' comes from Pogue Mahone, the anglicisation of the Irish 'póg mo thóin,' meaning "kiss my ass".

yup, dling it now, though most of their st patty's concerts are only 3star audience recordings.

the boston globe published an article defending the sham holiday, something about in the 1700s 50 cannons were snuck up on a hill and fired at the british, and it goes with patriots day in april and bunker hill day in june.

If you say Pog, is it a short o, like rhymes with hog, or does it rhyme with vogue?
