Is 'FRAYLIES' a Gaelic Word?

While listening to Irish folk music
I hear the word 'fraylies in
reference to "potatoes."

Is this an Irish word?

Thanks in advance.

Are you sure that that word wasn’t pronounced like “freighties” or “preighties”?

You probably misheard praties which is an Anglicization of the Irish word prataí i.e. potatoes.
