Synopsis: A guide to the words that give color, vigor and individuality to the spoken language in Cork. It explains their meaning, gives examples of usage, and traces their derivations from sources as predictable as the Irish language to such exotic and unexpected ones as Hindustani, Shelta, as well as English, French, Norse, and Dutch. There are almost 400 entries, 1,000 derivations and 21 illustrations by the renowned Cork artist William Harrington.

About the Author: Sean Beecher was a Corkman very much dedicated to his native city. For many years he delved deeply into its character, history and, not least, its unique vernacular. This book reflects the intimate knowledge he had of his city, its people and their colourful colloquialisms.
