#14 | Ó Mo Dhia, Nach Aisling Ceart í?
One of the most recent Irish words to enter common parlance is Aisling – a sensible girl from outside Dublin with an aversion to notions. While the origin of other words based on names are lost in the mists of time, we can trace this one to a popular Facebook group, Oh My God What A Complete Aisling. The creators of this group, Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen, have written a book of the same name and were kind enough to pop into HeadStuff to chat to Darach and Éimear about it. They also discuss hotel breakfasts, Christmas Mass, the Irish roots of the name Aisling and her hometown, Ballygobbard… and the positives of social media.
