tá an focal seo i 'the tailor and ansty'
it's obviously an attempt to anglisize an irish phrase.
any ideas what the original phrase would be?
it's used as an independent ejaculation, and only once in the book.
if you'd like the context, féach thíos....

I’d say it begins with "Tá Muire..."

B'fhéidir...
'S a Mhuire, sin foighne!
má tá 's' cosúil leis an 'th' i mBéarla?

Mh is not pronounced m, and n is not pronounced m, I think. It would be too far from what is pronounced (even badly pronounced), I suppose.

Well, there's no 'th' like the interdental English 'th' in Irish. If the m meant 'mo', then you'd say 'aina' not 'faina.'
Aon tuairimí agat fhéin, Lughaidh?

I'm sure I can put my hand on an Irish language version of 'The Tailor and Anstey', which if I'm not mistaken was first written in English? The Irish version may have the original of that phrase, if someone could tell me what page or even chapter to search pls?
