Local Words

Saturday 22nd May 2010, Matthew was swimming in 'Ards Gala', swimmers from all over Ulster gathered for this event.

I was standing in the queue waiting to pay, the two women in front of me were, well as women do, having a wee gossip, lady one said 'I was really scundered' and she went on to say 'he is a wee skitter that yin'

I am not a language buff, nevertheless it is always great to hear these sayings that were in use when I was reared in Newton - as they are not always used today, particularly in Bangor (always over emphasise the OR, apparently!)
