Wait, what? There's a word for green boy?? I assumed it would just be glas na buachaill or something
It's two words: buachaill glas
But, why does 'glas' have to come after 'buichaill'?
Because adjectives in Irish come after the noun, unless it's one of a few used as a prefix.
It's the same in French, if that helps.
Le train bleu.
So, the glasraí is the derivative from glas=green?
Yes. I was in a restaurant in Belfast once where the hostess told us to eat our greens.
Are u kidding me? THE GREEN BOY?
Indeed he does.
