Ahh lads if only I were younger. I'm nearly in my 60s. That's a very old profile pic.

53

you can say like in English.
Tá mé caoga trí (bliana d’aois).

Or like the older people, and traditional way to say it.
Tá mé chúig bliana déag is dhá fhicid (d’aois).

53 vs. 55
2 years make such a grammatical difference? ;)

No idea how to parse that last one. Any hints? My attempt to brute force that one came out as "I am towards ten and two of twenty years (of age).

chúig bliana déag is dhá fhichid = 55 years

c(h)úig bliana déag = 15 years
is dhá fhichid = and two twenties

15+2x20 = 15+40 = 55

I made a mistake in the calculation Vitaee. And made you two years older than you are. That was the joke. Maths was never my strong point. :LOL:
