I was sharing some of your old native sayings with the lads in work and they were awe struck. One of the older men made the comparrison between our Irish sean fhocáils (old sayings) and I looked back through my notes and found this one that I am sure will impress you and you will see the point he was making between this and your banana one; 'Níl aon spíonán ar crann úll' roughly translated reads 'There are no gooseberries on an apple tree' I think my workmate has a point, do you?

I know from your PM that you lead a very busy lifestyle but if you can please continue to post and I will mention to Strum about your difficulties in accessing PM's when in ~*&^{!$%%^&******
Regards to Mrs D and Fletcher.

well thank you jordo --
is'nt there a lot of simularities in the old folks sayings in both our countries -
I wonder is it a mix of Irish missionary influence and our own folklore combined???????

for instance "dont stand too close to the fire or you will get your bananas singed"
I like that one cos it verges on the rudeness
or how about
"woman becomes more like her mother -but man becomes more like a boy"
thank you for your assistance jordo, you are a generous help

thank you Strum for your assistance

Dave, may I say that you are to be commended for your valiant attempts to grasp our native language. I,d go as far to say that some of our own people have been hastily looking up their Irish/ English dictionaries to get to grips with your writings. :o If your embassy work ever allows you the time to visit these shores, I think you,ll find several members waiting with open arms :ugeek: Just dont stand too close to the fire though! :twisted:

Cede milly fafter.

It would be a pleasure Dave, on condition that you enrich us with some everyday simple sentences in your own native tongue. I,ll start you off with an easy one; "cois na tine" which means "beside the fire".....just mind out for your bananas though! :o

Take her handy Daithi! :ugeek:

Just wondering if you have any updates on your ancestor dave????????
during the course of the next couple of days I will be doing a crash course in our native tongue
I have discovered a new and cheap way of learning -basic Irish -
the local bus service has installed a new electronic signage system-with this voice reading out the journey stop by stop and street by street-
while one might not be able to carry out a conversation in Irish -at least one can learn the street and area names in Irish. :D :D

McCooley
Very rare name in this format
1 entry for McCooley in 1901 census in Donegal
No McCooley in 1911
Three McCooleys listed in Civil registrations but no Ignatius Bamberton

Hundreds of McCooleys in US census but no Ignatius Bamberton

Quite a few of "McCooe" in Count_ Armagh (they dont like Y's up there)

More seriously though, for those who were prisoners, police or military and who were enumerated at their barracks - you wont find names at all - just initials. I think military shipsa did the same. Not certain about hospital patients or orphanages. Boarding schools and Merchant ships did full names.

And you can search by initials. There are hundreds of "I.McC." in both census. when you drill down you can see where they were "barracked" & with whom (by just initials)
