All things Irish!
on the back of a long sleeve Guinness t-shirt in Gaelic is the words(and I am not sure about the spelling) "Uonn Dub Dubalta" and also "Seata San Seamus At Cuat". What do these phrases mean in English please?

What you have is known as the Guinness Gaelic Label t-shirt. It’s a replica of a label used for Guinness Stout bottles. It’s translated as follows:

Half circle at top: Extra Stout
Half circle at bottom: St. James Gate Dublin
Under half circle at top beneath harp: Trademark Registered.
Signed Arthur Guinness Son and Company
Under signed name: Bottled by
Following is the name and address of the publican who used that label: D. O’Sciatain
68 Upper Dorset Terrace
Dublin
Half circle beneath that and above St. James Gate Dublin:
Bottled stout like no other.

1.) You know what “craic” is and that it’s not a drug.
2.) You’ll pay 4-6 euro ($10) for one pint and not even bat an eye.
3.) You know what the “off-license” or “offy” is.
4.) It’s not “good” it’s “grand.”
5.) Hurling does not mean throwing up.

Saddam Hussein was sitting in his office wondering who to invade next when his telephone rang. “Hallo! Mr. Hussein,” a heavily accented voice said. “This is Paddy down in County Cavan, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on you!”
“Well, Paddy,” Saddam replied, “This is indeed important news! Tell me, how big is your army?”
“At this moment in time,” said Paddy after a moment’s calculation, “there is myself, my cousin Sean, my next door neighbour Gerry, and the entire dominoes team from the pub-that makes 8!”
Saddam sighed. “I must tell you Paddy that I have 1 million men in my army waiting to move on my command.”
“Begorra!”, said Paddy, “I’ll have to ring you back!”
Sure enough, the next day Paddy rang back. “Right Mr.Hussein, the war is still on! We have managed to acquire some equipment!” “And what equipment would that be, Paddy?” Saddam asked. “Well, we have 2 combine harvesters, a bulldozer and Murphy’s tractor from the farm.”
Once more Saddam sighed. “I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 16 thousand tanks, 14 thousand armored personnel carriers, and my army has increased to1 and a half million since we last spoke.”
“Really?!” said Paddy “I’ll have to ring you back!”
Paddy rang again the next day. “Right Mr. Hussein, the war is still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne! We’ve modified Ted’s ultralight with a couple of rifles in the cockpit and the bridge team has joined us as well!”
Saddam was silent for a minute, then sighed. “I must tell you Paddy that I have 10 thousand bombers, 20 thousand MiG 19 attack planes, my military complex is surrounded by laser-guidedsurface-to-air missile sites, and since we last spoke, my army has increased to 2 million.”
“Faith and begorra!”, said Paddy, “I’ll have to ring you back.” Sure enough, Paddy called again the next day. “Right Mr.Hussein, I am sorry to tell you that we have had to call off the war.”
“I’m sorry to hear that” said Saddam. “Why the sudden change of heart?”
“Well,” said Paddy “We’ve all had a chat, and there’s no way we can feed 2 million prisoners.”
