Anglicised as spailpeen or spalpeen, or "wandering landless labourer" was
an itinerant or seasonal farm worker in Ireland from the 17th to the early
20th century.*
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpailpĂ*n#cite_note_Culture_page_442_1>*The
term derived from the Irish *spailp*, meaning "turn, spell, bout."


The dictionary and Efrem received a score of 5: Shani was the real winner


Take it away EFrem
