Sounds like something an undercover spy would say to another undercover spy to identify themselves.
This uses "sa". Previously, I've seen "san" for the singular 'in the'. What's the difference?
san occurs before a vowel sound
So I take it an example would be "Tá iasc san uisce."?
Obviously! I think I've even seen that somewhere:-( Brain is obviously elsewhere tonight... Go raibh maith agat
San means in the. To break vowel sounds you a h ie na hÉireann
sa also means 'in the'. The difference between sa and san, like I said, is that san comes before a vowel sound.
