Cnáimhseáil

posted by: Déiseach v.

Whingeing, giving out in a morose or subdued way, often used in the form "cnáimhseáil-ing" or phonetically 'knawvshawling'. Person who engages in this rarely receives pity.

"She was cnáimhseáling all week that he never called back about the dance, but why would he and the eatin she gave him the week before!"
