28:01:14 Feck!

The word "Feic" in Ireland is actually the Gaelic word for "Look" 

Obviously it sounds a lot like a swear word and Irish people of all ages substitute the word "Feck" in their sentences to make what would be a very rude sentence somehow acceptable enough to be used by kids and grannies without raising an eye-brow! On our visit to Dublin we saw lots of places using the word to make a humorous statement. One of the funniest was seen from the top of a double decker bus. We passed too fast for me to get a photo but it was a blackboard outside a cafe claiming  to have "The best Fecking food in Dublin!"
