In case anyone is wondering. Gabh mo leisguel literally translates as "take my apologies"

I like getting new words and phrases but it is a bit ridiculous to throw them in the middle without explanation. Thank my IRN BRU that there are (sometimes) underlined hints!

It is in the tips reading for the module.

In what context would you say this e.g. if you wanted to squeeze past someone?

"Gabh mo leisgeul. This means "excuse me" and translates word-for-word into English as "take my excuse". You would more likely use this when you bump into someone or spill their IRN BRU. You can also use it to flag someone down and get their attention."

Probably just how you usually use "excuse me"
