As they say in Ireland

While Americans and Irish both speak English, our use of words is so very different.  Here are just a few of the things we've noticed.

my = me
little = wee
you = ye
good = brilliant
delicious = gorgeous
sale = event
nice = lovely
um = em (we're guessing this how to spell it)
how do you like Ireland = how are you finding Ireland
utensils = cutlery
mail man = postie
mail = post
restroom = toilet  (though this is pretty much throughout Europe)
goodbye = off ye go

The joy of traveling is learning about different places, people and cultures.  It is always lovely to see how much of the places ye visit stick with ye after ye leave.  Now, off ye go!
