Brown sauce [broun saws] [noun, condiment] Takes half an hour to get it out of the bottle, but goes with spuds, bread, meat, anything you fancy. Ireland's equivalent of Marmite - you either love it or hate it. Bye bye bye bye bye [by by by by by by] [repeated interjection, a form of farewell] Why do Irish people find it so hard to finish a phone call? Gaelic Athletic Association [G A A or Gaaaaah] [proper noun, acronym, sports organisation] The organisation responsible for Ireland's native games, Gaelic football, hurling, camogie, handball and rounders. Impossible to imagine life without it - it's as Irish as St. Patrick, Peig Sayers and potatoes all rolled into one. Messages [mess aj iz] [noun, bought provisions] No, not the Whats App kind, but the shopping. Remember the days when kids were dispatched down to the local shop whenever the house ran out of milk, or bread....or cigarettes or scratch cards. And if they were lucky the kids could keep the change.
