    What does “bhloc” mean ? It’s not in the on-line dictionary.

  • Daithí Mac Lochlainn

    “ar an bhloc” = “on the block”

    (i gcanúint Nua Eabhrac)

    Go raibh maith agat !

    You’ve to drop the “h” Dav. The root word is just “bloc”

    Such a complicated language for an old fart like me, grumble, grumble, grumble. One good thing from the ongoing Q&A controversy – on one of the linked shows I found out how to pronounce Tanaiste ! That aside I have ordered the Rakish Paddy Blues, which comes with a CD of piping and poetry in Irish. I won’t understand what is being said, but I’ll hear the music of the poetry, which is supposed to be very special.
