Also, Loveable Jackeen Shamrogues, who as we all know, are right bollox's.

@voxhib Vox Hiberionacum @voxhib

cf. "Ogam", a complicated cipher created by an absolute bollox, most likely from Kerry/Cork.

@IrishPhilosophy The 'excursion' was very famous. I've talked to people who remember doing it as kids.

@voxhib Vox Hiberionacum @voxhib

@IrishPhilosophy No, just there was a belief that it was 11 days out of sync with the mainland. Hence a period of grace for latecomers.

@voxhib Vox Hiberionacum @voxhib

@IrishPhilosophy It's not. It was a folk hangover from 1752 calendar change.
