    File under ‘Begorrah’ and ‘Bejasus’.

    All that’s missing is a reference to potatoes.

  • Zorin001

    The Pontiff must be thinking “Christ I was naughty in a past life”

  • Tochais Siorai

    And, imho, it’s in very poor taste, given the circumstances.

    What about ‘a wild handlin’ – or is that just a Scots thing?

  • grumpy oul man

    Last orders!

  • grumpy oul man

    I’ve heard it used in fermanagh and Tyrone, but i suspect your right it probably is US.

  • BonaparteOCoonassa

    As far as I know it’s not a “Scots thing” at all – it sounds much more NI. But I’m prepared to be corrected by anyone who knows otherwise.

  • BonaparteOCoonassa

    6. The Empire is coming back! (That’ll be the day!).

  • Nevin

    You’ll find ‘wile’ and ‘hanlin’ in the Dictionary of the Scots Language.

  • Croiteir

    Hardly – that is the Dalai Lama, he is in I am doing my Purgatory now

  • Dónall

    Yeah I’m getting a bit tired of people living up to stereotypes based on 19th century British novelists attempts to interpret Irish country life and folklore. This is what tends to happen where language loss has occurred.

  • james

    Thank you, Nevin

  • ted hagan

  • Casper

    Wile hanlin is still in regular use here along the north coast.

  • Deeman

    Lighten up ted.

  • ted hagan

    Yea but it doesn’t really work, let’s be honest

  • Deeman

    Of course because 2 miles down the road from me is a foreign country …. Yawn

  • ted hagan

    You miss the point by about a thousand miles.

  • Nevin

    and ‘some hanlin’!
