Lios Cúil.
Lios is a fort or that enclosed space around a dwelling unit.
It can also mean a fairy-fort.
'Lios' sites had a lower status than ráth or dún sites.
Cúil means corner or nook.

Hi.

Today I heard someone say on the radio, a word in Irish that means something like 'to lose your mind or out of your mind'. I think it started with an o but I don't recall anymore. Does anyone know the Irish word?

Thanks.

As do mheabhair would be the most common way to say it. If I think of a single word I'll get back to you.

Apart from as do mheabhair, the only other way I can think of is - As do chiall.

Hi Snag Darach.

That maybe the word I heard. The radio guy said it like it was one word.

I also just found this thanks to you: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%C3%A0s_a_chiall

Cheers.

Hi guys.

In this recent video by Cork City FC, a guy at the end (around 1:43) says "Your City, Your Club" in Irish. What is the exact phrase and spelling?

"Your City, Your Club" by RebelArmyTV:


Thanks.
