Maith an buchaill a Thomais. Good man That's lovely. When I was at the Gaelteacht we use to say ( knowingly) Oiche Mhaith ( good night) , codlaith snaimh ( swimming togs) instead of Codladh Saimh (sleep well). ha ha Excuse the spellings, just because they sounded so familiar. ( I thought it was funny, it's just my kind of humour I guess ) ! !

Just repeating what I had read and asking a question - that's how we learn.

Still on the subject of Fuchsia, the nursery near Killybegs had a Fuchsia growing it the hedge from which they took cuttings. I never managed to be there when they had plants for sale. It was over 8' tall, but the leaves and white flowers were tiny. Has anybody come across this lovely plant - I have forgotten it's name, but it was so pretty I would love to have it in the garden.

I once asked for a pint of guinness in Carraroe in the gaelic tongue, unfortunately it didn't come out as it should have, unknowingly to me. The barmaid didn't bat an eyelid, must have heard it many times before.

That's the fella. A good Strabane man! Did you ever read 'The Third Policeman'? It's very good; he was a very smart man with a brilliantly subversive mind.
