My wife and her sisters, growing up on Arranmore and speaking Irish, called them Julie Bushes (July?).

I wonder who gave fuscia its irish name and when, as they are an introduction?

Don't know that. But somewhere in Dublin is an office with people making up new words in Irish for new words that come into the English language as they appear, well actually sometimes years later.

So is the Irish for Fuchsia - Teardrops of the gods? The English for Fuchsia is, as far as I know, Fuchsia - it's Latin name! It was named in memory of a German botanist called Leonhart Fuchs. Don't think we have a common name for it.

Deora Dé


Thosaigh Dia ag caoineadh lá
faoin achrann ins an domhan
thit deora dearga óna shúile
fuil na bhFlaitheas ar nós abhann.

Thuirling siad ar Éirinn
thit siad caol isteach sa chré
agus d'fhás ansin a smaointe
i bhfoirm bláth - na Deora Dé.
