Description

Bout ye! Mark Neil from NI Taxi Tours introduces to a few colloquialisms and tells us about how Belfast's language is shaped by Irish and Ulster Scots traditions. He explains that a silly person is often referred to as a buck eejit, after Buck Aleck, a Belfast eccentric known for walking his lions around the city in the 1940s and 50s.
