If someone was carrying a lot of stuff they "looked like Wordie's horse."
If the place was untidy it "looked like a house in Urney Street."
If someone was mean with money they were "As tight as a crab's [censored], and that's f....in' watertight." or 'He's as tight as a bull's [censored] goin' up a hill."
Someone not so smart was "Thick as champ.", "Thick as two short planks."
If something caught your attention "I near took a buckle in me eye."

My Mum and I would be talking away in the car in front of my small son and not really paying attention to what we were saying in front of him. You don't realize what children pick up, but it became obvious I would have to watch the content of our conversations when he repeated a phrase he obviously picked up from that day's conversation- Ach, away to he**.  This was at home in New York. He didn't pick that up on the Bob the builder show.

One my mother used to tell her friends, my father was always ill suffered from heart trouble, she would say "you know I didn't marry a man, I married a medicine bottle" - God love her she was always running for prescriptions! 
 
Another one of her sayings, if you asked for something to eat she'd say "I'll give you a lump of your death" - GW

My Grandfather used to say " If ya dont work your jaws wont either!!!".
 Or as kids we'd say "Your heads a marlley and your bums a buller !!!".
One thing that was brought to my attention when I came here to Australia was how we in Belfast would put "so it was " , or " so it is ", after finishing a statement of a fact or just anything ,so we did.

my dad did use "real" swear words but what i remember most from when i was small was    "flip me pink". while im here my dad was in his fifties when i was born so i loved all the old stories. best one was when my dad was really young and the strreet bully had him TORTURED one day he was sitting on his doorstep watching this bigger boy and then went inside and thought whatcan i do?  well his answer was to take one of his mums hat pins and go outside again and wait.... well the opportunity came when the bully bent over to pick up his marlies ...my wee skinny dad then charged and shoved the hatpin into his bum....laughed at the howls and then ran in and locked the "big" door.   i know a chargeable offence these days but it still makes me really laugh when i remember my dad telling me that story. my dad said best thing was after that he could play out and not be worried. "stuck my skinny wee chest out and laughed at him"  priceless!!!!

"Keep us yer roots"; means, can I have the core of your apple when you've finished?
"Clap yer eyes on her over there wud ye?" How exactly do you 'clap' your eyes? I know I can clap my hands, but my eyes?
"Ye've a face on ye like a bucket full of smashed crabs".
"Ye've a face on ye like a bucket full of busted a--eholes"
"Ye've a face on ye like a bucket of boke".
We are very good at mental imagery in Norn Iron!
 
jmac posted; 'are you talking to me or chewing a brick?' well the reply to that one was of course;
'No, I'm trying to digest a bungalow'. :D
 
'It wud freeze the balls of a pawn shop so it wud'.
 
Heard at the Oval (our Oval, not the English one) many a year ago; 'That referee is blind in one eye and can't see out the other'.
As a child at the Oval I was very taken with a man in the crowd who stood up and chastened a few lads in the crowd who were giving the referee a hard time. He shouted at them, 'Catch yerselves on there, don't ye know that man has no mommy or daddy?'
It wasn't until years later that I realised what he meant. :D

Pray for me and Tommy Todd
Tommy Todd is a prod

Then we would laugh and mum would put us to bed in the middle of it.  Which was our aim all along. ;)

Being from Sandy Row myself i use the oul one "this place is like maggie moores" if the house is a bit untidy. Maggie Moores of course being the old second hand clothes shop on the Row that had old piles of clothes and shoes piled high in the windy and all over the place.

James Young was great at the aul Belfast sayings, i loved it when he asked "have you a tip for your binman?" and the reply was "your not my binman, my binmans a wee low set man" .dont think too many of my friends here in England would know what a WEE LOW SET MAN was lol. Another one was "ach away you and scratch yourself". Refering to a girl that loved herself was "if she was chocolate she wud ate herself". A well dressed man was "he luks like something outa Burtons windy" .Someone from the other side was "he kicks with the left fut" . :smile:

A lovely story Rod, I remember that saying 'under the doctor'.  I am glad you had longer with your mammy.  Irish mammies are a tough breed, mine was the same, she bounced back so many times from illness, the kids called her Supergran.  Sadly we lose them all the end. :air_kiss:

Smith 19, Irish Collen is right.  A costume was clothing - a short jacket and a skirt to match, and we used to wear a costume going to Sunday School and Church, it wasn't something you wore every day, maybe to a wedding. (Every Spring and Fall I used to get a new "rig" for Sunday School and the summer one was almost always a "costume" with of course the hat, bag, shoes and gloves to match.  (see I'm really old)
 
My understanding of a fawn costume is the colour of your skin was considered as being fawn and it covered your body as did a costume??  Smith19, what is your friend's explanation?

Wait for it. One explanation was indeed as you refer to the fawn costume as the colour of skin and this term was offered as a derisory comment to another.
 
The other and more dramatic. During any altercation which would have taken place - and the source tells me she would have heard this many years ago - between an individual and a member of the armed forces who would wear a "khaki" or "fawn" costume such a term of abuse would have been used!! What do you think?? I can't really believe this but will seek further sources, and the more people I ask the more seem to be familiar with the saying.

If you'd bought a new (2nd hand) car and somebody asked you how it was going, you'd say it was
"goin a dinger".
 
If you asked somebody how their kids were, they'd say they were "tearin away there".

Sandymc  I should have been more specific, sorry.  Patrick Taylor's books are novels, most of which take place in a fictitous town in County Down.  They are really good.  The writer lives here in Canada, of course he is from home and he spends half of his time in Northern Ireland and the other in Canada.  I just love his writing.  He just writes as we folk from Norn Iron speak..

A rattling, roving Irishman,

She washes her face in the frying pan,
And out she goes to hunt for a man

A large penny bap and a clipe of ham

Remarking on someone with buck teeth. ."are you breaking them teeth in for a horse"  

I think I might have already mentioned these two, but they're worth repeating. Someone with buck teeth was said to have " a quare mouth for rippin' begs." or "She'd make a terrible mess of a turnip."
My mother used to love giving the same answer when we asked her what was for our tea "Sheep's [censored] and orange lilies."

It was an odd word, often spoken but rarely written. Inn the US it is rare, but the word :"biddy" used in the south (little biddy boy) apparently has the same Irish language origin. "wee" generally meant small but has a subtle meaning as an emphasizer, " a wee liar" being more than a liar and a "wee nok" being more attractive than average.

Eugene McEldowney, originally from Ardoyne, wrote a book called "The Falorie Man"

He  was a reporter for the Irish Times.
Hi MacNamee, was Eugene McEldowney ever an English teacher in St. Malachys? If he was, he taught me between 71 - 73. I quite liked him.

My sister said "It's OK,  I'm gettin thanks" Of course the man behind the counter had a puzzled look on his face because he didn't know that that was the Belfast way of saying "I am being served thanks" I said to my sister "For God sake, please don't tell that man that you are waiting for a poke"

I recall on a visit to aus, finally getting so [censored] off at not being understood, i asked the barman for three pints, he said do you mean three points. no I shouted and pointed my finger at him, this is a point, I want three pints. ;)
 Wish i could say I,m sorry to him.

I don't think he ever managed a third pint, but if he had, my ma would have given him 'the feel o' me shoe', for she was a fierce Mayo woman!  Talking to my maternal cousins, it seems all our mothers, who were sisters, used to save energy by whipping off a shoe and throwing it as hard as possible at a troublesome child. I think my grannie started that one as, with 8 kids, she always had one or two babies on her knee and couldn't keep getting up out of her chair to deal with the 'divil' ones.  My ma in particular could have successfully lobbed grenades at enemy machine gun posts in WW2.  Talk about a deadly aim! But all that is for another forum, perhaps!

I have to admit that the only bit of me that's from Belfast is my heart.  I love visiting the city of my paternal ancestors and still have some lovely cousins there.  I love to her the Belfast 'chat', especially as it brings back fond memories of my lovely Dad.  I heard another 'typical' Belfast phrase from the coach driver who dropped us off at the Giant's Causeway (my most favourite place on earth).  He said 'that's us'  which I imagine equates to 'we're here'.

The first time I visited the beautiful province, as a child, my auntie said to me "will ye not have a cup o' tea?" which I took to be an instruction rather than an invitation so, baffled, I promised her I would not.   At every house we visited, someone said "will ye not come in?".  Eventually, I got the picture!   :scratch_ones_head:

Well toadstool, he did his drinking over in England, where he'd moved for work (or mebbe cos the pubs were open Sundays!) and where I was born.  I did say 'twas only my heart that's my Belfast bit. By the way, that Caribbean chap me ma kept running off with (according to me da) couldn't have been up to much, as she was usually back after ten mins or so.  I just wondered if anyone else's Dads said that in Belfast or if mine picked it up over this side of the Sheugh? And does the phrase 'ya wee skite' mean anything to anyone, or was that just one of my Granny's words? I think that's what she used to call me, then again, I might have misheard ...!

"Skite" could be used as  a verb or like , as mentioned  above, as in "skite-the [censored]", which I think implies that the target of the insult is not too careful when he's peeing.
These hyphenated words were quite common. Who remembers cheap wine being called "Bate -the -wife"
or "Walk-the-walls" or "Wreck-the-house"?
Ther's got to be a lot more that I've forgotten.

Yes I think it (and the verb to cod) was based on a fish's rather foolish expression (don;t get offended folks if you look like a fish), to be a cod was to be stupid or at least stupid looking and so not to be taken seriously,hence "he is codding" He is not to nbe believed. The Teachers in my primary school were mostly from the 26 counties and they tried to decide who was acting the "wag" and who was a "lig"

God figured a lot in my mammy's conversations and she regularly said 'If God spares us'  at the end of a sentence.  God  would be called on to protect and guide us in normal conversation.  'Holy Mother of God'  was her reply to anything that shocked her and ' Ach sure God's good'  was another one. . ' God forgive you that's a sin on your soul'  was a regular one used if you were being a bold girl.  Is it any wonder God scared the life out of me as a child?. :D

FGS Burnsy. Yer nat that smart as you didn't comprehend the grammar I used - that "I'd" (I HAD) never heard of the name Siobhan when I first heard the joke in the sixties. The joke I was told at that time used the name "Yvonne".  I'm well aware these days how Siobhan's pronounced since my sister-in-law named her daughter Siobhan 25 years ago.  :D
P.S.  If you don't understand that ye CAN Yvonne ('eave on/heave on) yer knickers, ya haven't got much of an imagination.    :D :-*

Thanks for the explanation and education KC, much appreciated O0
 
Dommo, you started this and I got the blame >:D
 
I would like to point out that until last night I thought Siobhan was spelt Shavonne :D
 
Eejit or what :D

I'm sure most of these have been mentioned already but just in case they haven't...

That's beezer (That's good)
Yer ma (A mocking insult)
Aye, like flip (replace flip with a word that rhymes with duck, said in disbelief at something)
State o' ye (if you are drunk / been in a dirty puddle)
What's wrong with yer kite (if you look sad / angry)
Shut yer bake (stop talking)
Here (excuse me, can I have your attention)
Here mucker (excuse me, friend)
Winner! (usually shouted at someone who has just failed something)

I don't think I've ever heard anyone say the famous "here's me, wha?" except in a self-referential joking manner.

If anyone would like it, I have James Young saying "here you, shut yer bake" on mp3. Great for a phone message alert tone! :D

One of the expressions I find amusing, 'specially since I've been away from Belfast over 50 years, when they add "so I will' after a statement
for example do that again and I'll tell your Da so I will.
 
The other one I like is when they add the word "But" at the end of every other sentence.

My ma used to 'Steep' her peas and barley overnight for her home made soup. After all the other ingredients were added, she would chuck this old chicken into the mix and let it boil away for hours. The thing must have been a hundred years old because it was tough as old boots when supposedly 'Cooked'. Often wonder if can you still buy a boiling chicken, or broiler as I think they were known.

He's got a touch of the oul' browncatus son.  The bronical sort.  Bronical browncatus.  It's the worst you know.

Aye, the doctor told me I'd have to give up the drink or it'd kill me.  He said I have psoriasis of the liver.

My knees are my downfall love, ever since I got the Arthur-itis.

The doctor told me I have blood pressure.

I had a wee problem with my waterworks so they sent me to see the neurologist.

I was under the professor for a year so I was.

Thats Danny, Does he still drink at his favourite watering hole, the Mylk Bar?
I would have enjoyed a few on St Patricks day with him, but sadly I was on a plane from Bali to Brissie, then straight over to Kiwi that afternoon. Did you sell your place in Chermside?

Can anyone tell me when the old gelnbyn parade houses was knocked down? When i seen it on Google earth it was a smack in the mouth to see the new house. I went to wheatfield primary school, i cant remember the school being so big! was there buildings added to it? I left wheatfield at eleven (1964)and then went to sumerdale secondary school.

If a girl had nice long legs they were said to "..go up to her [censored] and down again."

 Or if someone was not too tall   "If his legs were any shorter his feet wouldn't touch the ground."

" Stickin' out" or "stickin' out a fortnight"  were good things

 Something obvious was "Stickin' out like a dog's balls"

If someones clothes were all creased or just awful my Mum used to say that luks like the style that Mary sat on. (Don't know who poor Mary was). :D

Someone who didn't walk very elegantly was said to walk like a Mullingar Heiffer. (not sure of spelling)  :D

When we sometimes asked what was for dinner Mum used to say [censored] soup and doodley broth!

 Quite surprised to see that this had been censored. It was meant to describe a male cockrel and NOT a male appendage. As cockrels go [censored] a doodle do hence the doodley. My mother would not even have known that there was another meaning and I certainly would not have sent anything to offend anyone. But if you feel that an alternative name for chicken soup would offend some people then so be it.  :(

Will ye stop futtering (fiddling) with that.

When I die I don't want any yapping and gurning (weeping and howling),

If things were a bit untidy - This place is a midden.

Somebody who wasn't clean - He/she's boggin!

A naughty brat - they want a good skelping (slap)!

A splinter in your finger - was called a wee skelf.

Where did they these words from? I know that there are a few that go back to the Jacobean period. Sometimes I use one of my Mother's sayings and have to translate for my Husband but he knows what oxters and midden and boggin mean. Poor tourists must wonder what the heck is being spoken. :D

When my parents moved to Canada in 1959, Dad revelled in telling our Canadian friends that he "knocked up at least 6 women on the street every morning, and he fell out with my Mom if she forgot to give him his piece before he left for work at the shipyard." LOL  Another Irish friend of ours, when leaving a Canadian's home after dinner, thought he was complimenting the wife on her cooking and hospitality when he said, "Without a doubt, you have the homliest wife in town."  Poor, Paddy, he got a steaker and was never invited back!

Hi Eileen,
I think the older(and wiser) ones used to refer to TB as consumption, isnt it lovely to hear all those old sayings and descriptions again, maybe some clever person should write a book about all the Norn Ire sayings...could be a berst seller.

Sorry, I forgot to reply to that Patsy. I cracked up at that story and yes, I bet that was my friend Jennifer!!!
I have to say you and your brothers were spoiled rotten Mister. The day and hour that I would have got breakfast in bed!!! I would have had to have been dying!  We had no brothers of course and Mammy was the youngest and only girl in her family so she had to cater a fair bit to her brothers so. .she was having none of that anymore thank you. I would be lying sleeping on a Sat morning when I was a young teenager and through a fog I would hear "Eileen,Eileen, will you go down and make me and your Daddy a wee cup of tea and a bit of toast love". I always heard about Irish Mothers and their sons. According to my lovely Canadian husband I became one of those Irish Mothers! I, of course disagree. .

Ahh Eileen your Canadian husband must have thought he had won the lottery when he married you.
My Fathers sister married a Canadian way back in the 1940s, and I have a bunch of Canadian cousins, who unfortunately I have never met in person, my brothers have met them and got on great with them. My Dads sister Vera moved to Canada in the early 40s and Im sure her french Canadian man felt so lucky to have met her, Dad used to take a trip to Montreal every now and again to catch up with his Sis.

I always heard about Irish Mothers and their sons. According to my lovely Canadian husband I became one of those Irish Mothers! I, of course disagree. .
Forgot to mention, yeah my lovely Mum did spoil me rotton, being the eldest I think I was the apple of her eye, in fact when she had a wee drink she would sing to me...Hello Patsy Fagan your the apple of my eye.

Oxford English Dictionary
Definition of faff
verb
spend time in ineffectual activity:we canít faff around forever
noun
a great deal of ineffectual activity:there was the usual faff of getting back to the plane


Origin:late 18th century (originally dialect in the sense 'blow in puffs', describing the wind): imitative. The current sense may have been influenced by dialect faffle 'stammer, stutter', later 'flap in the wind', which came to mean 'fuss, dither' at about the same time as faff (late 19th century)

My Dad is still extremely funny. when they got married they were both working in England he from Youghal Co Cork and Mam from Belfast falls rd. They went on their honeymoon home to Belfast and stayed 15 years. Dad always called her his Belfasthen hence my user name he said the first placed he worked a man told him that's what good looking women were called. so..
Mam would say "Now Paddy lets be frank" (honest) and he would reply I am Paddy pleased to meet you Frank
Great Gran and Granny called every female Miss , Miss Eileen, Miss Philomena etc.
Auck away on, when you did not believe someone...
People that you  owed  money to who collected weekly milkman, bread man, were called Tally men. At Great Grans house every tally man had her famous soup dinner boiled brisket, Marrowfat peas (we called them Farting) raw onion new potatoes and butter, and a bowl of fresh vegetable soup with barley and lentils I still make for my family in the US today. .wish I was back :(
