Irish Slang

Louise Vinciguerra on her blog Visa First has a humorous guide to Irish Slang. If you want to know what “Fancy a few scoops” and “Sound as a pound!” mean, have a look at it. However, you might just fancy going to Ireland and trying to work it out for yourself. How about a stay at one of these properties?
