Thought this would be interesting while I was abroad. Explaining that I could rattleof 50 words for drunk used in Ireland without pause.

Must be a unique to us here.

So I thought Id like to see everyone elses words for drunk and get the

" Boards Definitve guide to being drunk in Ireland"

Start with the basics

1. Ar mesice

2. Langers

3. Pissed

Now Id like to see a few more colouful and regional ones......Maybe an explantion for any obscure local oddities or personal faves.

Cheers

Haha. Once explained to foreign work colleagues that, in the same way the Eskimos describe snow in dozens of different words in their langauge, because drink is as in your face to us as snow is to the Inuit, we have pretty much as many terms

Drunk
Locked
Rubbered
Slaughtered drunk
Balloblus
Ossified/state of ossification
Twisted/twistified/twistifried
Bananas drunk

Whats so great about this country is you know what type of drunk is being described by the wording. If someone was bananas drunk, they were drunk, a bit of energy and rowdy/talking sh1te when they shouldnt have.

Rubbered is fairly jolly and inoffensive. Probably the best drunk state to pull in

Flutered- jolly, not with much control of the legs but talking good natured utter sh1te to birds

Slaughtered- in bits but still fairly coherent

Ossified- hammered and talking/getting involved in sh1te. See "bananas"

Twisted- off your head, needed others help to even get home
