DANGER

This book contains adult language and may offend your sense of good taste.

Do you want to find out what the gaeilgeoir means when he/she uses the Irish words for ‘nerdy’, ‘well-hung’, ‘effing and blinding’, ‘slimeball’ or ‘drop-dead-gorgeous’? It’s all there, with numerous entries under the letters C and F. Already a cult hit, Kiss My... will appeal to the Irish-language student and the open-minded traveller alike.

This book proves that the Irish language lives and is in rude health.
— Indeed
Garry Bannister, for many the enfant terrible of Irish language studies, ‘has a sharp ear that makes you wonder where he spends most of his time.
— Alan Titley
