In a multiple choice question, the two answers to this question were "mo jab" and "mo bheart oibre". I can see how that would work—except, I have no idea what the 'bheart' might be...

Haven't seen either before this exercise, and thought "mo jab" might be a joke, so I went for "mo bheart oibre".

Looking up bheart or beart wasn't a lot of help for me, so I don't get it either, unless it's to do with "work place" or "experience" (?)

Are we supposed to know "bheart oibre" at this point?

jab is definitely the word any Irish speaker would use in this situation.

I've heard post quite often for 'job'. That said, I've heard jab too, and both should be accepted.

The answer at the top of this forum is mo phost, which is what I would have expected. But mo phost isn't even a choice

Jab is among the Irish words in the Foclóir Gaeilge-Béarla that begin with the letter J.
