So, this is a surprise isn’t it? A bonus blog on St Patrick’s Day? I’m going to treat you all with a few Irish sayings which you may do with as you will.
“Yer Grand” The first time I heard this, I had nearly written another woman’s car off in a car park. I wound down my window and apologised a lot and she gave me a carefree wave and “Yer Grand” in response. The nicest almost collision I ever had! It means everything from ‘you’re nice’ through to ‘okay, no problem’.
“May the road rise up to meet you” It sounds very much like I feel sometimes trying to walk home drunk and scared of falling over, but it’s not what is meant at all. It actually comes from a lovely little prayer/blessing –
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
“Eat the head off” In context ‘I was so angry, I just about ate the head off Mary when she shat on my patio’ It means you had a right go at someone.
“Feck” yes, it’s like the Irish version of fuck to Englishers, but it’s not considered anywhere near as rude. It may also come from the word ‘feckless’ to mean useless. Therefore… “Feckin Eedgjit” becomes “Useless Idiot”. It doesn’t have the sexual connotations of fuck either.

While you’re passing by that way, will you pick up anything else? P’haps have a go on the High Impact Gacha and see if you can buy for yourself a very stunning Skull Hat, and why not?
RealEvil’s release for Men Only Monthly isn’t available yet – so this is a sneaky peek. It’s just for boys, so no putting it on if you don’t have a pixel peen, okay? I only did it to show you how it should not be done. No. Not ever.
Will you get a load of that? It’s a well lit, no shit, so it is. Click on it to see me huge and then watch the slightly Irish video below. But more than any of this, have a great St Patrick’s Day, especially if you’re Irish.
