The Irish words for ‘selfie’, ‘Brexit’ and ‘spam’

This article discusses some Irish words that deserve to be better known and might be worth adopting, even for English speakers. (The title was probably written by a sub-editor, as féinín and Breatimeacht are hardly the most interesting words in the article, though turscar is a really interesting alternative for "spam", and I'll be using éistphéist in future too).
