He hates it as much as the devil hates holy water.
Micheál Ó Conghaile’s ‘Colourful Irish Phrases’ is a small compendium of characteristic phrases that will alert the reader to the unmistakable difference between our native language and English. Even the most basic words are expressed so differently.Topics covered range across subjects as diverse as insults and put-downs, being human and the gift of the gab.
