Dublinisms


#422

Granda always used “Buckets of Shush” to keep us quite.
Called fellas a Mutton Head or Mallet Head…


#423

or a window to throw it out of

My mam was giving out to one of my brothers one day and his reply was, “you bleeding’ rared me”

An old work colleague of mine is a real auld Dub, and one of his witticisms is “kids are like farts, you can just about stand your own”!


#425

I’m sure he will be along later defending Vincent’s and giving out about Jim Gavin :wink:


#426

HaHaHa Ya complete baliks

I was just about to go asleep down here in enemy territory and I woke up my youngest with a very loud splurging laugh!


#427

Uniquely Dublin terms

All that and a bag of chips
All that and the bus fare home
Give it socks


#428

When someone bumps into you, you say “sorry” - instead of “watch where you’re going asshole”!
We’re very polite people really.


#429

Anyone familiar with “chance your arm” ?


#430

Very familiar … but usually ended up getting “a smack in the mush” :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:


#431

Dip in the dip and leave the heron for your granny…


#432

Is that Dublin,Ohio :thinking:


#433

Save yer breath to cool yer porridge!


#434

Now that’s a new one for me.


#435

On first read I thought it said leave the heroin for your granny. Now that …


#436

Actually a quick google revealed it’s Herring, not Heron. Me Da says it all the time. From when they made a watery fish stew thing, but you had to leave the best bit for granny


#437

He would eat a nun’s arse through the convent gate


#438

Yep.

And chancer. Spoofer. Charleton.
Strumpet.


#439

Or he/she would ‘Say Mass…’


#440

Is “I will yeah” a Dublinism? As in, when asked to do something that you are 100% not going to do, you say I will yeah. Could be an Irishism rather than a Dublinism? Got me in awful trouble when I first moved to Australia anyway


#441

He’d ate a leg of the lamb of God, that lad.
