When we say that a child is full of divilment, are we saying that they are possessed by Satan? No, we are not.

When we say that a child is full of divilment, are we saying that they are possessed by Satan? No, we are not. 

In today's episode, Darach, Gearóidín and Peadar consider the concept of the devil in the Irish language. Why does diabhal scéal (devil a story) mean no story? What's the deal with the devil being buried in Killarney? Were politicians aware of the term Taoiseach An Bháis (Lord of Death) when the term Taoiseach was chosen to mean Irish Prime Minister? And with all these terms, how much weight should we give to "fear dubh", which entered The Discourse this July? 

We also talk about Protestants and the Zoo, for some reason.
