An Pluiméir Ceolmhar Lyr Req: Wexford Carol (in Irish) (39) RE: Lyr Req: Irish Language Wexford Carol 07 Dec 03

This weekend, I got round to looking up pilibín in the old dictionarY. Was pleased to find it confirmed my hazy recollection that the word means plover, which seems like an inoffensive term of endearment...

Then I read on through the other meanings.


When I was a little boy in short pants learning Irish we didn't even know that there were words for that sort of thing (blushes) in Patrick Pearse's hallowed language of choice.
