Garry Bannister, the author of numerous language courses and Irish dictionaries, has a wide knowledge of both Irish literature and Celtic folklore. He has extensive experience teaching Irish both in Ireland and internationally.

This is the first dictionary of its kind in the Irish language. Irish publications have always been reluctant to explore the more raunchy vocabulary of the Irish language, but this little book fearlessly breaks that taboo.

‘This book proves that the Irish language lives and is in rude health.’ Indeed. Garry Bannister, for many the enfant terrible of Irish language studies, ‘has a sharp ear that makes you wonder where he spends most of his time.’ (Alan Titley)

Do you want to find out what the gaeilgeoir means when he/she uses the Irish words for ‘nerdy’, ‘well-hung’, ‘effing and blinding’, ‘slimeball’ or ‘drop-dead-gorgeous’? It’s all there, with numerous entries under the letters C and F. Already a cult hit, Kiss My… will appeal to the Irish-language student and the open-minded traveller alike.
