    Default Irish Translator

    Hello Irish people,
    I want to say some things in Irish to some American people. I was hoping that you could translate a few sentences for me. Is anyone here fluent in Irish?

    I know there is the "kiss my ass" not sure how to spell pog ma hone
    But there are direct sentences also that id like to translate.

    Well Dolly sorry to say but there is no direct Irish translation for "Go fuck yourself" but Kiss my Ass, that’s easy, Póg Mo Thón

    I got an A2 in my leaving cert many years ago so i suppose I'm fluent

    Kiss my ass - pog ma thon (pronounced h-own)
    fuck off- foc il leat (pronounced latt)

    There are different dialects through the country. Different words are used for some things in each region.
    Irish Dictionary Online - Irish English Dictionary

    I always new the word for penis as been budgeen. I never saw it in the written form as their would be no need for it for Leaving Cert But in other regions it's known as slat. In my translation a slat is a rod

    Dolly, there is an old saying or seanfocal in Irish. It goes something like this......

    "Nil aon Thontine mar do hThontine fein".

    Translated into English, it means...."There's no backside/arse like your own backside/arse".

    I'm not quite sure about the spelling....but I'm sure Highway or Anon would be able to give you an exact version.

    You could also change it to "Nil aon Thontine mar mo hThontine fein" and use it as your Irish slogan. It would be great for drumming up the business in the Gaeltacht areas.
