    I love the irony in most of our beautiful slang, some of my favourites are:

    Actin' the maggot
    Creamed out of it
    Fleeced
    Relax the cacks

    I was lookin at the Irish Slang site and saw a bunch I didn't recognise, also the popular Irish Sayings one was good. Loads out there to give ye the sh*ts and gigs haha

    My Dad bought my mam a keyring which said, "If I had a brain, I'd be dangerous", after she had brain surgery! Almost 18 years later and she still has it!
