LaoisToday Podcast: Aimee Alexander, author of ‘The Little Book of Irishisms’

Little Book of Irishisms
Denise Deegan, author of the Little Book of Irishisms, with her daughter

This week’s guest on the LaoisToday Podcast is Aimee Alexander (or Denise Deegan to give her her proper name), author of The Little Book of Irishisms, ‘Know the Irish through our Words’.

She talks us through some of her favourite words and phrases, unique Irishisms that just can’t be understood by people from outside the country.

Banjaxed, bockedy, ructions, segotia and foostering all feature quite highly.

The book is available to buy on Amazon here as well as in selected bookstores.

You can listen to the episode in full below on Soundcloud or by subscribing to the LaoisToday Podcast on Spotify or Apple Podcasts. 

The LaoisToday Podcast is brought to you in association with iCashco, market leaders in automated cash handling.
