Translation:My mother cleaned the house from bottom to top.
I remember that the name of one of my primary school Irish books was 'Bun go Barr'. I never knew what it meant until I was in my twenties.
Hah, 'Bun go Beár'. It would confuse Irish people into thinking it was bear-themed.
Is it a regular thing in Irish to say it this way? In English I'm used to "top to bottom" rather than"bottom to top. "
Yes, but Duolingo accepts "top to bottom" as a translation.
Thanks, Moloughl, sometimes DL is very literal, so I didn't do it, but will next time.
The preposition ó causes lenition so you get ó bhun.
