    Glas = green in Irish.


    I was under the impression "glas" could mean "blue" or "green". Is this an old fashioned usage?


    Glas would not be used to mean green now. That used to be the case but now if a something is a shade of blue in english then it is glas in welsh and if something is a shade of green in english then it is gwyrdd in welsh.
