Over in a county not far from here, at a Catholic parrish, I met some people who told me they know of a lady parrishioner who speaks Gaelic.
I haven’t done much in the study of Gaelic or Hiberno-English for a while. But here’s a word I came across that I’d like to share with those who are interested in Irish speech, whether Gaelic or otherwise. From the Oxford English Dictionary:
an obsolete and rare Irish word meaning ‘feasting’. Also, the tradition among Irish chiefs of paying extended (and most likely expensive) visits to their dependents or tenants. A 1612 citation in the OED remarks that “the lord…did eat them out of house and home.” The noun is coshery.
The feast or holiday commemorating the start of the summer agricultural season.
Am listening to a programme from BBC North Ireland on the May Day traditions.
