Fun Irish Sayings- by Josie Riviera

In March, many people focus on St. Patrick's Day. My daughter lives in Ireland, and she's become accustomed to using many fun Irish sayings. 

Here is a sampling:

"About Ye!" --- How are you?

"What's the craic?" --- What's going on? This term also means great fun and is used constantly.

"Such a dose." --- What an idiot.

"Shall we go for a dander?" --- Shall we go for a stroll?

"Full so she was." --- She was drunk.

Do you know any Irish saying? Please share in the comments below.

It's a 99 cent Kindle Countdown sale for my sweet Irish romance, Maeve.
