    On Ros na Run there is a phrase I hear that sounds like Gull a so I used the Irish closed captioning to see what the phrase was in Irish and it shows Gabh i leith. Am I hearng this wrong? What does it mean? GRMA

    I just tried to write a reply, but it didn’t seem to go through. Maybe because I posted a link. In any case, I found the answer to your question online. If you search for the phrase in Google and look for the Tumblr post by friendlyneighbourhoodpolyglot and there is a good explanation and usage notes about it.

    Yes, that’s right. The phrase ‘gabh i leith’ sounds more or less as if it was written ‘goile’. The Donegal equivalent would be ‘goitse’.
