Indeed a nice creative phrase was that, Murrisk.
The Irish troops in Lebanon regularly communicated as Gaeilge on the airwaves to keep the eavesdropping Israelis in the dark. A friend who served many tours once told me how a colleague
related that a bulldozer was moving up a hill .." Tá tarbh ina codladh ag dul suas an cnoic"
Alas, Official Ireland is now going about turn with some of these lovely phrases. The zoo was always known as "gairdín na nainmhithe" (garden of the animals ?) A couple of years ago I saw a signpost pointing towards " An Zú "
When did the Irish alphabet get the z ?
