There use to be this mad oul one on our road, she’s dead now God love her but she got into a row with another neighbour and in response to an accusation she screamed at the neighbour ‘ask me crack’ it took us 10 year olds a few weeks to figure that one out.

After My Left Foot came out, every penalty award in Dalymount or Tolka was greeted by a strangled cry of “let Christy take it”

My niece was at the Dublin premiere of Lincoln, with Daniel Day Lewis himself in attendance. There was total silence at the end of the Gettysburg Address - the pivotal moment in de fillum, where everyone is supposed to be wowed by DDL’s Oscar worthy performance. Until some Dub wit shouted out ‘Good man Christy’ and the place just erupted. The niece said DDL was less than impressed. :joy:

‘Git’ (as in a nickname for anyone called ‘Christy’)

Remember when the movie Alexander the Great starring Colin Farrell came out.
Dubs started calling it Alexander the Deadly.
