Paddy Plastique County Characteristics (49) RE: County Characteristics 03 Aug 02

Malachy, anyone not from Dublin: culchie, mullah, redneck, bogger... should've
insulted enough of them there. 'Jackeen', I believe, derives from the word 'Union Jack' -
with the Irish diminutive. It infers that we Dubs were little Britishers - for the most part
true as The Pale had been the centre of English rule for 700 years
Now, can anyone explain to me the term 'Mayo, God help us!' Why do Mayo people call
out for divine intercession ? (I should know, as my Ma's from there)
