sausages - bangers; bacon - rashers; soda - mineral; cake - gateau;. Sausages are also known as black or white pudding. What they call bacon is closer to our ham steak, the rashers are what is fried for breakfast. None of these words are "Irish" or Gaelic. They are Hiberno-English.

Praties - potatoes (properly, práta/prátaí). Boxty (Bacstaí, or so I've been told) are reeeeealy delicious potato pancakes...

I've never heard anyone actually say "praties". "Spuds" is more commonly used though this may be regional.

oh, yes...spuds too, i forgot about them...

"For the breezes blowing o' er the seas from Ireland
Are perfumed by the heather as they blow
And the women in the uplands diggin' praties
Speak a language that the Strangers do not know."
-verse 3, Galway Bay

used also by irish members of my family when i was growing up

Also "The Garden Where the Praties Grow" and "The Praties Do Grow Small Over Here" but I was referring to actual conversation and not waxing poetic. As I said, it may be regional or perhaps my Irish-born family was more pragmatic.
