    "well... she wouldn't stand in a gate for ya..."
    It means the person is rather flaky and not to be relied upon.
    I think the equivalent for a man is to say that he's "very come day, go day".
    As far as funny Irish sayings go, I think it's hilarious that "fierce" - a word my father applies to bad weather - is now the height of praise for young fashionistas on shows like Project Runway. I'm just waiting for Tyra to praise some young model's catwalk strut as "mighty altogether". Then I can die happy.

    I used to get the response, "I'll crisps your arse for ya!"

    Basically it was the same reply every time just change 'crisps' for whatever you asked for.

    Just glad I never asked if I could have some Cadburys Fingers :p
