This post is definitely not exhaustive of Northern Irish sayings (I mean we do have ALOT), I may expand this series n the future however, who knows.
I would also like to point out that all of these Northern Irish sayings are available to buy as prints from my website www.julieharron.co.uk
For now though lets get down to what on earth these Northern Irish Phrases mean:
#1: 'Keep 'er lit'
Scundered means: This Phrase has a dual meaning depending on what part of Northern Ireland you live.
In Belfast & surrounding areas this word means 'embarrassed' but in Mid-Ulster it means 'annoyed/frustrated'.
Yeoooo means: Technically this saying should feature more 'ooooo's' than I have included because this phrase can linger on a bit.
This is a personal favourite of mine, as we use this phrase often in our family. This phrase is most commonly used as a reaction to good news. e.g. 'I got paid today....Yeoooo!' or 'Holidays started today...Yeoooo!'
#11: Quare Craic
Quare Craic means: 'Quare' usually means 'a lot' or 'good'
and 'Craic' usually refers to fun or laugh.
So if someone is 'Quare Craic' it usually means they are a lot of fun.
#12: Buck Eejit
Buck Eejit means: A term of endearment used to describe someone who is silly or a bit of an idiot.
