Keep her lit

September 13th, 2015 | Uncategorized

This weeks Ehoops session was a particularly fun one for me.  The young ladies that I worked with this week taught me a few things during the session.  I began teaching a few basketball skills to my group and asking what everyone’s name was.  The next thing I know I am getting questions about my hometown and how my experience here in Ireland has been so far.  The young ladies started to teach me some of the Irish vernacular and one word stood out to me “Keep Her Lit”.  I was taught by the young ladies that “keep her lit” means to keep it going.  I thought that phrase was awesome so I didn’t stop saying it and the girls didn’t stop laughing.  I wanted to keep the fun going so I continued to say keep her lit through out the night.  So now that I have picked up a little Irish vernacular I think I can better relate to the youth, which will definitely help me build relationships with them.  “To God Be The Glory”
