11 of the best Irish compliments you can get

“They all have lovely bottoms.”

IT’S A MATTER of fact – Irish people are genetically built to dole out insults and reject compliments.

The time has come for this to end, and for Irish people to fully indulge in the glory that is self-validation and praise.

In fairness, we’re a dab hand at coming up with our own compliments – so why shouldn’t we?

1. Only bleedin’ massive

Or ‘massif’, depending on your enunciation. No, nobody’s calling you fat – in fact, nobody’s implying that you’re taking up space at all. You’re just an all ’round good guy/gal.

2. A lovely rig-out

A compliment used by mams and reserved for outfits at occasions such as weddings or the races.

3. Snazzy

Frankly, this is one that is under-utilised in my opinion.

4. You’re unreal

Not so much as in that they don’t believe you’re a real person. They just think you’re so amazing that you literally could not exist in reality.

Un. Real.

5. That’s class

An excellent synonym … For excellent.

6. Gorj / Gorge

Spelling on this varies, but they’re both abbreviations for the same thing – gorgeous.

7. Whopper

Not a burger, you’re just great <3

(An example sentence – burgers are whopper).

Burger King Burger King

8. Gas

You’re funny AF.

9. A deadly buzz

You’re good craic to be around, and you’re probably always invited to the after sesh.

10. He’s a bit of jizz in him

Questionable, yes, but it does mean you’re energetic and have a ‘spring in your step’, shall we say …

11. Decent  pronounced ‘daycent’)

You’re good-looking.

12. Legend

Like Fionn Mac Cumhaill and many before him, you will be put down in the history books as being a lot of fun. Well done.
