Had fun reading all the slang words, some familiar, some not so. Dusk, a pearl-grey river, o’er Asthore is one word that came into prominent use during the Irish literary renaissance. I went to her and she hugged me and rocked me as she did when I was only a nipper. Irish words for friend include cara, cairdeas a dhéanamh le, crann taca, duine aitheantais, páirtí and comrádaí. Glad you enjoyed it was fun putting together! We Irish do have some odd words we use everyday! Acushla comes from the Irish Gaelic cuisle, which can mean "darling" but more literally means "pulse" or "vein." :^D What a fun hub.

Wow, what a journey Swords to Peru, my bucket list no.1 stop! Here are some of the best Irish sayings about friends that capture the spirit of the Irish. That's just the way it goes.
