Is féidir méar an fháinne a chur leis chomh maith. Is dóiche go dtagann an téarma seo ón nós/ón bhealach a chaitheann easpaig fáinní ar an mhéar seo. Tá ab ar leibhéal le heaspag. Má tá eolas eile ag Riadach ba bhreá liom fáil amach.

Ohh they were mentioned in Riadachs poem. Beidh mé ar ais nomeaid.

'S dhá mbeadh mo chlann sa mbaile agam- If my family were at home with me,
An oíche a bhfaighinnse bás,- The night that I would die,
Óra, thórróidís go fiúntach mé- They'd wake me worthily
Trí oíche agus trí lá;- For three nights and three days
Bheadh na píopaí geala cailce orm- They would have bright chalk pipes because of me
Na ceaigeannaí is iad lán,- The kegs they would be full
'S thabharfadh Páraic Mór go Maínis mé- And Páraic would bring me to Maínis
Nó is garbh a bheadh a' lá.- Or the day it would be rough.

So my answer is : píopaí cailce.

See. Writing the bearla after the gaeilge does work.

Tabhair dúidín don pháiste? Shíl mé go raibh sé suimiúil. An focal céanna. Aon sampla agat

Nuair a thug AG 'dúidin' ar an goban siúrach, cheap mé go raibh an t-ainm chéanna ar rud eile - píopa, nó 'dudeen' as Béarla.

Cad is brí le corrmhéar? Ciallaíonn 'corr' crane (éan)ceapaim.

Níl stair an fhocail agam ach tá sé in úsáid sa ghearrscéal 'Neill' le Padraic Ó Conaire. Níl aon réasún a bheith chomh feargach le sin

Is feargach mé. Feargach = Mad
Tá fadhb agam, tá's agam.

Ceapaim go bhfuil baint idir an corr agus draíocht. D'usáid siad an tearma corrghinuint, nó rud éigin mar sin le haghaidh mallacht. Sea tá's agam, showin' off!

Ar aon nós, arais don cluiche:

Lads,

question for you from a non Irish speaker. where does the word Béarla come from? It doesn't seem to bear any relationship to the words for English (as people) England or British (other then what appears to be a very superficial resemblance to Breataine). I presume it originally referred to a language of one of the British tribes? Or possibly the Welsh?

Edit: BTW. I'm putting this in here as it doesn't really warrant a thread of its own, and this one already has some English!

Béarla comes from the worth Béalra, which literal means mouth-stuff. This came to mean language, hence we have Béarla na bhFileadh ór Béarla Féine. Because of this it was used to describe Béarla na Sacsain, the saxon language i.e. english. Eventually the sacsain was dropped, and béarla came to be used for English alone.

Hey good question MikeW - as this is a bilingual forum at least so you can post questions like that in this forum I'd say - a discussion on what the word 'Béarla' means (it is a beginners forum after all)

And now I've learned something too today because you asked that. If you have any interest in learning just say so and someone might start explaining the pronunciation of the written word - it's as worse as English !

Thanks for that Riadach. Odd isn't it considering its predominance in the west today that it basically just means language.

Auditor,

I'm afraid I have long since accepted that whatever I am, a linguist I'm not....
