irish slang for
dailtín or raispín


Explanation:
Having grown up speaking both Irish and English, I recall being called one of the other on (several) occasions.

However, they may be slightly dated, so I will come up with a "cooler" term tomorrow.

Yes, I'm still there, but have not yet been in touch with some Irish friends who still speak the language. It's a bank holiday in Ireland, so they may be away for a few days. I'll be in touch.
