Irish people tried to explain classic Irish insults... and failed miserably
“Cute hoor. That’s a culchie thing isn’t it?”

EEJIT, GEEBAG, GOBSHITE – Irish people are wildly creative when it comes to insulting our enemies. We all use these words, but do we actually know what they mean?

The folks at Facts went to the Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre and quizzed some shoppers on our most common insults. The responses were somewhat worrying.

Like, if your mate’s a gobshite, he’s just a gobshite. But if someone you don’t like is a gobshite, that’s a bad thing.

Right. See, now WE’RE confused.
