Get up the yard!

Posted by TheFallen on June 05, 2003

I have an Irish friend (Dublin-based) who says this a lot, as a humorously mild rebuke. (She also peppers her conversation with frequent "annyway's" (sic) and an incredible amount of "so's", especially at the end of a sentence, but that's another issue.)

I'm wondering if "get up the yard" is a uniquely Southern Irish expression - the somewhat archaic Brit equivalent would probably be "get away (with you)".

Calling Shae, come in please, so.
