The Manky Map, A Slang Map of Ireland by The Word Bird

(1 customer review)


This is the A3 unframed print of the great fun Vernacular and Slang Map of Ireland, a word art map made up of everything we say that other countries don’t. I made it initially based on things I’d grown up hearing my dad say, his language was colourful to say the least. Until I was about 12 I thought everyone said ‘bollox’ when they sneezed. It’s filled now with sayings from all over the country and is an affectionate and nostalgic connection with our home grown English language.
