Ireland: The Only Place Where...

Hello romance fans! Being an historical romance fan and a lover of all things Irish, a friend of mine (and native Irishman) gave these hilarious one-liners to me. I posted them on my blog for St. Patrick's Day, but was unable to really promote the post as I was celebrating my youngest daughter's birthday and gone all weekend. So, I thought I'd share them here. Trust me, these are all worth reading and I bet some of you will be saying "so true!"

I know St. Patrick's Day is long gone for this year, but I think these are very entertaining no matter what day it is. I hope you enjoy!

IRELAND - HOME SWEET HOME

The only place where........ 
  • If you die from alcohol poisoning, you're considered a lightweight
  • "Fu*k off" means "Are you serious?"
  • The person that you insult most is probably your best friend
  • Saying "I will, yeah" means that you definitely won't
  • "Fu*k it, it's grand" means that you couldn't be bothered to finish it properly
  • "He's fond of a drink" means he suffers from severe life-threatening alcoholism
  • Saying you're going for a drink means you might not be seen again for 3 days
  • Crisps are called 'Taytos' and fizzy drinks are called 'minerals'
  • "For the craic" is the best reason for doing anything
  • The best cure for a hangover is more drink
  • Nobody can go a day without saying "Jaysus"
  • "Meeting" has a double meaning

  • Tea is the solution to every problem
  • And water is the solution to every GAA injury
  • "I got stuck behind a tractor" is a perfectly valid reason for being late
  • You can insert the name of a farming or gardening tool into any sentence and it still makes sense, e.g. "I had a rake of drink last night" or "I'll be out in a minute, I'm just shoveling down the dinner"
  • Saying "Now we're sucking diesel" means that you are happy with the outcome of the situation
  • Drinking "tae" is everyone's favourite past time
  • You're scared of the wooden spoon
  • The word 'like' goes in every sentence
  • You can say "Any craic?" to a garda and you won't get arrested
  • 'The dogs' boll*cks' means something brilliant

LOL,Thanks for sharing Renee! I had to laugh at the excuse of using the excuse of being behind a tractor for being late. I live in a farming community and this has actually happened:)

Renee Vincent said...

As you can imagine, Paris, it happens a whole lot here in KY. hahah

Thanks for reading my post!

Lol these are great. The sad thing is, you can take most of them and apply them to Canadians, too (being Canadian myself...) LOL!

Renee Vincent said...

Thanks Jean!!! I thought so too!

Renee Vincent said...

Natalie, I'll have to take your word for it. But I know what you mean. Several of these are true of Kentuckians. hahah

Have a great week!

Paisley Kirkpatrick said...

I'm think' I would flounder over in the Isles. Great post, Renee. I love how the Brits from anywhere speak and could listen to them forever. Especially on in particular. ;)

Miriam Newman said...

Ah, all so true. Stuck behind a tractor also works where I live. Stuck behind a buggy, too.

Marianne Stephens said...

So if I ever plan a trip to Ireland, I'd better take a copy of your sentences! Love the one about gardening tools in sentences.

Renee Vincent said...

Oh I know exactly WHO you mean, Paisley! His accent NEVER gets old!

Thanks for stopping by!

Renee Vincent said...
