Thread Name: BS: Things Mom used to say
Subject: RE: BS: Things Mom used to say
I've posted about this before, but maybe someone might know what it means:-
My mother often said things like "You've been playing in the mud again allowan!"
Or, "She's sickening for something allowan."

Another person might say, "I'll be bound".
But where/what was 'allowan'?? (Bearing in mind she was from Cork in Ireland)
Any ideas?
