Dia duibh !

Tá bron orm, ach tá gaeilge an-beoga agam :-)

Has anyone been able to decode the Irish phrases spoken in this film ???

I only got :

1. Sláinte
2. Nil fhios agam.

There are some more, not many but ...

Go raibh maith agaibh, slán !

One I recall was "Níl fhios a'am. Nach bhfuil Gaeilge agat"?

In the big wake at the end the were reciting HailMary-"Sé do bheatha a Mhuire", etc....

I found the movie all in all rather dissapointing, but it has encouraged me to learn a little more about the Five Points and the Draft Riots, which it neatlt dodged.

I found this rather informative: FIVE POINTS

Hi Lluis,

Another link you might find interesting:

Another phrase is: "Fágtar an fuil ar an lann"
The blood is left on the blade.

Sla,

Oliver.

A Lluis, a chara,

Más buan mo chuimhne, when Brendan Gleeson had Leonardo de Caprio up against a wall, he gave him a piece of advice, citing an Irish seanfhocal:
"an té nach bhfuil láidir, ní foláir dó bheith glic" - the person who is not strong had better be clever.
