I think we may be looking at another case of "wine glass" vs. "a glass of wine" here.

Redwolf

Or possibly more a "wine glass" vs "a glass for wine".

When do weddings usually take place in Ireland? (and what would you call a wedding breakfast?)


The wedding Mass would be usually at 11am or 12pm sometimes later.
Then lunch at an hotel. Then music and dancing until late.

Sometimes not all the people that are invited to the Church are invited to the reception.
Church is free, reception costs money. But at the end of the day the guests really pay their own ways with gifts.

It is recommended that you always wait for three to agree on a translation.
I speak Connemara Irish, and my input will often reflect that.
I will do an mp3 file on request for short translations.

I've been to weddings where after the luncheon, the neighbors are invited in for the dancing and snack foods are served to all. Also, only at the wedding toast at the luncheon are the drinks provided. After that, a cash bar is available.

So that would be why it would be an evening invitation, I suppose - but I thought tráthnóna could mean the afternoon just as much as it could the evening - so how would you know? I see that there's a song called 'Tráthnóna beag aréir' - which is translated as - late yesterday evening.
