Kiss My – Póg Mo Thóin
Dictionary of English–Irish slang. Garry Bannister, for many the enfant terrible of Irish language studies, ‘has a sharp ear that makes you wonder where he spends most of his time’ (Alan Titley).
Do you want to find out what the gaeilgeoir means when he/she uses the Irish words for ‘nerdy’, ‘well-hung’, ‘effing and blinding’, ‘slimeball’ or ‘drop-dead-gorgeous’? It’s all there, with numerous entries under the letters C and F.
Already a cult hit, Kiss My… will appeal to the Irish-language student and the open-minded traveller alike.
Garry Bannister is also the author of the popular phrasebooks Proverbs in Irish and What’s That as Gaeilge?.
