Wait I just realized the English word "galore" comes from "go leor"!! Always fun to find word connections between languages! My favorite is how "whiskey" is an anglicized pronunciation of "uisce" :P

Wow! At last actual Irish cognates! Thank you!

These are borrowed words, not (strictly speaking) cognates.

Which is then brought back into Irish as "fuisce".

Didn't like ' much money was earned on that night' maybe that's poor English.
