A Beginner's Language Primer for Hurling on TEE GEE Ceathair
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:21:29 PM »
As I am watching more hurling on TG4, I'm wishing I understood more than a cúpla focal of what these lads are saying. So, I am hoping some Irish-speaking hurling fans, here, might add a few phrases (and their Béarla equivalents) that might be commonly spoken by the TG4 sport commentators during a hurling match.

Go raibh maith agaibh!

 :)
LAOIS! LAOIS! LAOIS!

Thar an trasnán - over the bar
Go hiontach - excellent, brilliant, very good

I’m not familiar with that version of “Aw c’mon.”
