A bit of good old Irish banter, inspired by, and dedicated to wikinut author and friend
Fern McCostigan...please come on in and join us for an Irish knees up.

Fern's Beautiful Comment

Wikinut author and wine expert, Fern McCostigan is a friend of many here in the house.
If you need to know 'what wine to serve with what'...he's the man with the answers.

Fern wrote a heart warming comment on my celebratory post of the Commonwealth games being held in my home town of Glasgow.

.."Awesome competition, Hail for the Boys of my island, Ireland, Yes Mariah its my island, Erin go Bragh and hail the Tartan Army! "

The people of Ireland and Scotland hold a strong mutual affection for each other, and Fern has expressed his love for Scotland on many occasions...so this one is for you my friend.

Erin Go Bragh...

Erin go Bragh
Forever Ireland... these words do mean...

...For The love of the Irish you'll take away with you
when once to Ireland you have been...

Paddy Shaun And Shamus...

We have Paddy there on the left
your man Shaun... he's in the middle
Shamus there on the right..
oh to be sure..to be sure..to be sure
this trio can play the fiddle...


Sure at me daughter's birthday shin dig
the trio were parched with the Irish thirst..
they drank til the wee small hours
sure they can't 'remember' her 21st..

The Luuuuvley Mary....

Put yerself in me Irish heart
to hear me song in me native tongue..
I'm singin every mornin meself
sure long before the birds have begun....


Oh I luv the guinness, the wine, an the song
I bake me own bread every now an again..
oh now I luv a bit of the luuvvin
to be sure I lust after the good lookin men..


I luv workin in me garden..
the men shout.."hey Mary are ye winnin"
so ye can keep yer dandelions an roses
oooooh it's the dirt that get me grinnin..


one day Paddy called to me house..
lookin so handsome at me door..
ooooh we had a such good bit o' luvin
sure he's been back every day for more...


I'm waitin on the words..."will ye marry me Mary"
sure I've been ta pick out me bridal gown..
but Paddy hasn't come to me door today..
says Shamus..."to be sure Mary.. Paddy's moved to another town"


oooh but Shamus is a fine lookin man
he's got good muscles.. an pot o' gold too
sure I'm goin ta grab him into me parlour
an feed him with me Irish stew....













Out Of Action...

" I've got meself in bother
had meself a little drink
sure I'm supposed to be visitin a woman..
Mary's her name...me thinks!!

what time have ye got there
is it noon.. 5 6 or 7..??
could ye be tellin me what day it is..
oh Jesus..tell Mary I've died an gone ta heaven..

Oh I've had me very own party
sure I've had me whale of time
now could somebody be lettin Mary know
it wasn't me fault...it was FERN
sure he gave me this grand bottle of wine"....

Ó mo daor agus Deirfiúr hAlban milis, go raibh maith agat go mór do do chuid focal chineál agus hommage humble, tá mé ag do chosa go deo, is féidir Dia Bless tú féin agus do clan go deo agus a thabhairt duit go léir ar dhúichí eagna agus ar feadh an tsaoil!
In GAELIC it means:

Oh my dear and sweet Scottish Sister, thanks very much for your kind words and humble hommage, I am at your feet forever, may God Bless you and your clan forever and give you all the wisdom and a long life!
