Previously on le craic….
For Focal Sake – A 32 County Guide to Irish Slang. Hugh Jarce from slang.ie left a comment on the original post so I chanced my arm and sent him an email to see if there were a few promotional copies for the good readers of le craic.
Hugh duly obliged and has very kindly offered 3 copies of the book for any of ye that would like one. You know the drill by know – leave a little note with the words ‘wantsies’ in the comments and Hugh will dispatch one to you. (Update : All books gone now)
Do check out the website as well – slang.ie
Actually, Hugh turned out to be Cian Foley who put together the whole slang.ie website and then went ahead and compiled the book and got it out for sale into the shops.
My hat goes off to him – it’s a great achievement. I bought 2 copies of the book myself – one for me and one went to my Dad for Father’s Day (which he loves, and he doesn’t read books normally), so even if you don’t win a copy it’s well worth the €9.99 price (which includes p&p).
