We Can't afford the water, Have a dot myra(Quick wash behind the ears). Don't go all Gallagher on me .(Don't go foolish). There are ducks in the pond.(Something is afoot) Her man's all diluted(Drunk)You'll Get what Paddy shot at.(I was never quite sure of this, but in our house it meant"Nothing". Cobble up yer ounds (Look after your children.) Drop your oars...(Be still). Lots more but these are ones I have seldom heard outside my own family. Anyone else familiar with any of these ?
